Instead of adding milk to the granita, try topping this with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream! Works equally well with an aspartame-based sweetener, or add 1/4 c sugar to the hot coffee and stir til dissolved.

I used only 1/8 ounce of splenda cause it's sweet. Since I like alcohol, I added brandy. Brandy and coffee go well together. This is a tasty treat with just a few calories. Thanks Toni. Made for Zaar Star Game

I made this twice and still didn't get it quite right. It was very yummy and when I can get it down perfectly, it's going to be even better! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 4.

My DH got a nice surprise tonight when I handed him this drink. I chose to make two different one for us to try. One was with Rum and the other was with Brandy. Both Excellent to try. Well worth making.

Delicious! Coffee didn't taste that strong at all and it's refreshing having it with crushed ice. Made this as is with sugar free maple syrup and added a bit of amaretto. DH who usually enjoys his coffee with milk enjoyed this even without. Thanks for sharing this quick "lazy" coffee granita! :) Made for WZT4.

This was GREAT! I used decaf coffee so I could share it with my kids. I added a bit of sugar to the coffee first. Then we froze it overnight (forgot about it, oops). When we put the ice cubes in the blender, we also added a bit of milk. After we blended it all up, we threw it back in the freezer for about 45 minutes. Then we dug in! The waiting was about killing the kids! We found that it needed a bit of something to make it more kid friendly. So we added a couple of scoops of milk chocolate mix (Quik) to it.

I kept it real simple just coffee. I froze the coffee in ice cube trays overnight then placed into the vita mix with a small amount of unfrozen coffee, and they came out prefect.
