  • Yield: 6 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 20 Minutes


  • 1½ cups thickly sliced, hulled strawberries
  • 2 cups ruby red grapefruit juice
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
How to Make It
  1. Purée strawberries in a blender or food processor. Pour strawberry purée and grapefruit juice through a sieve set over a large bowl to remove seeds, pressing hard to extract as much liquid as possible; discard solids. Stir in sugar.
  2. Transfer grapefruit mixture to 9" × 13"× 2" baking pan. Cover pan with foil and freeze for about 1 hour. With a fork, scrape icy edges in toward the center. Repeat every 30 minutes until granita is semifirm, about 2 hours.
  3. Use a fork to scrape across the surface of granita, transferring ice shards to 6 dessert dishes. Serve at once.
