I have my few favorite foods that I enjoy regularly, like broccoli salad, pretty much any type of ice cream, and a great lamb dinner but there is one thing that I am a true sucker for. Slushy treats. Snow cones, shaved ice, slush cocktails, heck, I am known to pop a Gatorade in the freezer and enjoy it slushy. If it’s slushy, I am there.
Usually, I curb my slushy cravings with a grapefruit ginger bourbon slush or a peach wine slush but lately, I was craving a slushy dessert to cool me down on the hot summer days which so far this summer has been full of them.
I have been spending so much time in the sun and this granita over ice cream has been a seriously refreshing treat after a couple of hours in the garden.
This blueberry granita over vanilla ice cream was inspired by a red wine granita a recipe from Honestly Yum. She made a boozy granita and served it over vanilla ice cream. As soon as I laid eyes on it I was inspired. The mixture of granita and ice cream is genius and I was off to the kitchen to create my own.
