Recipe of the almond granita

granita-mandorleThe Sicilian almond granita is one of the most famous regional sweets in Italy. Together with the traditional Sicilian brioche, you would be amazed to discover how it is easy to realise this slush at home. The almond granita is perfect in summer: sweet but thirst-quenching, tasty but light and in particular it refreshes since the first bite! The main feature of Sicilian granita is its creaminess: so, pay attention to serve this recipe correctly.

• 400 gr of almond paste
• 1 lt of water


Crumble the almond paste block in a bowl together whit the water and mix accurately using a whisk to melt it down completely. If you can’t find the almond paste block you should use the ready-made almond milk.
Put the bowl in the fridge and let it stand for 4 hours. Remember to mix the slush each 30 minute with the whisk to let it remain creamy and not to form ice blocks. If when you serve the slush it is not enough creamy, blend it in a minipimer or in a mixer: you will obtain a really creamy slush. Serve it with almond shavings.
