Cold Brew Coffee Granita
Strong and sweet, this cold brew coffee granita is a summer staple on our treat-yourself list! Not quite sorbet, nor shaved ice, this is a MUST to add to your easy, low-lift sweets ideas.
A granita is an icy, frozen treat, originating from Sicily, typically made of water, sugar, and flavoring of choice. For this recipe, we’re using cold brew for a strong and smooth coffee base, however regular brewed coffee will also work just fine. You can also adjust the sugar-to-coffee ratio to your preference - just beware that decreasing the amount of sugar will result in an icier finish.
Optional - add a base/topping of whipped cream to make your granita extra indulgent! We whipped together a bit of heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla for that added touch.
What you'll need
3 cups of cold brew coffee
3/4 cup of sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
whipped cream (optional)
