Blueberry Lemonade Granita
Source: Kim Van Dunk
1-59 oz container Uncle Matt’s Lemonade
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh organic blueberries, divided
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon organic lemon zest
Place an 9 x 13 glass baking dish into the freezer.
Place one cup of blueberries into a saucepan. Lightly mash the berries. Add the lemonade, sugar, and mint into the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pot, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour the liquid through a fine mesh strainer to collect the pulp. Allow the mixture to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Pour the lemonade mixture into the baking dish in the freezer. Place the dish with the lemonade back into the freezer. Every 20 minutes run a fork through the lemonade to loosen the ice that will form. Repeat this several times until the mixture is fine, shaved ice.
Scoop into chilled bowls. Top with fresh berries and a bit of fresh lemon zest.
This is a wonderful, cool treat on a hot, summer day!
