Most fruits contain ample natural sugars….so there really isn’t any reason to add sugar. A granita is effectively a sorbet – but without the added sugar. Sugar depletes the function of the immune system for up to five hours after consumption – so reducing your intake will give your body an automatic boost. Peaches are rich in vitamin C & beta-carotene & a great source of fibre.
4 ripe peaches, skinned, halved, stoned & sliced (or any fruits you like)
2Tbsp lemon or lime juice
3 star anise
1 stick cinnamon
Fresh strawberries or raspberries to garnish
Heat the water in the saucepan until almost boiling, then turn off the heat.
Soak the star anise & cinnamon in the water for an hour, then remove & discard the spices.
Blend the peaches in a food processor with 2Tbsp of the water until smooth.
Add lime juice & blend again.
Place in plastic container & freeze until hard (4-5hrs).
Take out of freezer & serve with berries.
