Coffee Granita

Hey everyone: Today I'm bringing you another granita! Summer is almost over, but before it's gone, you have to try this Raspado! Nothing better than frozen coffee to cool down the heat during the last few days of summer! It is super easy and super delicious!

Ingredients:

(if you have any leftover coffee from the morning you can use that.) or
1 small package (1.75 oz) Gourmet flavored coffee  (any flavor you like.)
4 cups boiling water
1/4 cup of granulated sugar


if you are using espresso, or unflavored coffee and you want to spice it up a little bit you can season it with:

1 teaspoon cinnamon (more to taste)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (more to taste)
1/2 tablespoon of cocoa powder. (more to taste)

Stir the sugar and coffee into the boiling water, stir until the sugar has dissolved. The coffee, wont dissolve completely, that's the kind of texture I want. If you prefer, you can brew the coffee in a coffee machine.  (I'm using about 2-3 tablespoons of coffee for every cup of water, but be free to add as much or as little coffee as you like. The same goes to the sugar, add as much as you like.

Let it cool a bit, pour into a plastic container, cover and feeze for about 2 hours.

After 2 hours in the freezer the coffee should be frozen but not all the way through, break the ice with a fork to make the granita and place back into the freezer for about an hour.

Once again, break the ice with a fork,and you are ready to serve.


Garnish with whipped cream, sprinkle with a little more coffee or cocoa powder.
Enjoy!
