peaches and cream granita

Hello, Spring!
It's been a long time.

And what screams Spring more than a refreshing peach granita?
It might still be a bit chilly outside but this is the perfect finish to a nice, first-time-we've-used-the-grill kind of day.
Enjoy! :)

*Can you just take another look at those colors?? fresh and luscious!  Makes my mouth water...*

Peaches and Cream Granita
Serves 8ish.
3 1/2 cups peeled and chopped peaches (or frozen and thawed)
1/4 cup sugar 
1 cup heavy cream

Combine the peaches and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and puree. Transfer to a large bowl. Whip the cream in another bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold the cream into the peach puree, until there are no signs of cream. Pour the mixture into a storage container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.  When ready to serve, scrape the mixture with a fork until crystals form.  Serve in a chilled, fancy glass and enjoy!


  1. This looks fantastic. I love peaches! I can definitely see this chasing a nice burger or grilled chicken thigh. Thanks for sharing!

  2. It was so fresh and spring-like :)
