Granita is a bit like sorbet, but crunchier! It's yummy and really easy to make.
To make enough for 4 servings you need these ingredients:
15g maple syrup
10g rapeseed oil
some berries to serve
a few mint and/or basil leaves (optional)
Remember to wash your hands before you begin!
Ask an adult to help you get together these pieces of equipment:
glass or bowl to serve
paper umbrella (optional)
Take the stalks off the top of the strawberries. Then ask an adult to help you mix the strawberries, rapeseed oil and maple syrup together in a blender.
Remember to put the lid on!
Pour the mushy strawberry liquid into the container. Put the container in a freezer.
Leave it in the freezer for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, take the partly frozen liquid out of the freezer. Scrape it with a fork to make icy lumps – this will help to make it crunchier.
Now put it back in the freezer and leave it for 24 hours.
When you are ready to eat it, take the granita out of the freezer. Scrape the surface with a fork to take off some granita shavings.
Put the shavings in a glass (or bowl) to serve. Decorate it with the berries, basil and mint if you have some.
