Tropical Fruit Granita with Ginger and Honey #cookoutmenu #barbecuemenu #frozentreat #summercoolers

Celebrate this years tropical summer with my oh so delicious Tropical Fruit Granita with Ginger and Honey. 

You can definitely count on this crunchy and cool Granita if you are arranging your summer cookout or barbecue parties. Make it well ahead and have plenty of time to spare to. After just spending a few minutes on preparation and few hours in the freezer you will have a sweet, light and delicious treat for a hot summers day.

This homemade dessert also works beautifully as a mid-meal intermezzo as it's not too sweet, just refreshing. This granita is made extra easy by the use of ready made fresh fruit juice. Because we are obsessed with the mangoes and ginger, I added extra mango puree and ginger juice and sweetened the dessert with honey.

Serve it in a small serving ramekin or glass, top it up with fresh mango balls and garnish with the fresh mint, and see everyone captivated because they know that you are going to spoil them with this gorgeous frozen delight.

Notes :-
If you are entertaining adults at your party, make this Granita a little tipsy by adding a couple of spoons of rum or champagne.
