Tasty Thursdays: Peach Limeade Granita

Thursday, June 23, 2011

This week's recipe of the Peach Limeade Granita is from MyRecipes (image too). This recipe makes about 8 servings.

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 cups peach slices (about 3 medium)
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 1/3 cups fresh lime juice
  • Peach slices (optional)
  • Fresh mint sprigs (optional)
For the adult version: add in 3/4 cup rum
Directions:
  • 1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 5 minutes. Cool, and discard mint.
  • 2. Place half of peach mixture in a blender; process until smooth. Pour pureed peach mixture into a 13 x 9–inch baking dish. Combine remaining peach mixture, juice, and rum in blender; process until smooth. Add to baking dish.
  • 3. Freeze 8 hours or until firm. Remove mixture from freezer; scrape entire mixture with a fork until fluffy. Serve immediately. Garnish with peach slices and mint sprigs, if desired.
*If you prefer to serve this as a beverage, skip the freezing and scraping steps.
