Today i am back with another delicious summer-inspired recipe: Mulberry Granita.

This is a traditional refreshing frozen treat from sicily, usually for breakfast in the summer months. In fact, it is quite common to sit at an outdoor cafe and order a granita on a sunny morning.

I remember enjoying my granita in Trapani in a small cafe in the old part of town. I can still almost taste it while. It was so good! It was something I always looked forward to, like a special summer treat.

Granite come in many flavors and they are actually served with whipped cream and brioche. I know these can seem like a strange combination, but trust me, they go really well together.

Mulberry Granita is my dad’s favourite. This granita is tangy, sweet and refreshing, just what you want to have on a hot day!

Enjoy and don’t forget to leave a nice comment.
