    Miraklegirl's Note:

    This is a wonderful refreshing dessert or palate cleanser that I adapted from a recipe found in Pino Luongo's " Simply Tuscan". I serve it in frozen, hollowed out orange halves, garnished with a mint leaf.

      We had to eat this very quickly cause it was more slush than granita. Very refreshing and light and perfect on a hot, summer's day.
