This poor little recipe has been waiting ever so patiently in my drafts folder, dying to be posted on the front page of my blog. Now that summer’s end approaches, I think it’s a good time to post this recipe, because it just screams summer. You can think of this as a fluffed ice/kiwi granita. It’s so simple to make, and I love how all the fluffy little kiwi ice crystals melt on your tongue. I can’t think of anything more refreshing on a hot day. Here’s how to make it:
1/4 cup sugar (may need to be adjusted depending on sweetness of kiwis)
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup water
Slice each kiwi in half and use a spoon to dig the flesh out of each kiwi. Place the kiwi flesh in a food processor, and add the rest of the ingredients. Pulse until smooth:
Pour the liquid into a 9×13 baking dish (or even a sheet pan if you can get it into your freezer) and place it in the freezer. Every 15-30 minutes, use a fork to break up the ice crystals and fluff the ice. It should take about 2 hours for the mixture to freeze completely. Once frozen, serve in dishes and enjoy!
