GranitaCuisinart Original Recipe
Also known as granita siciliana, it is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavorings. Originally from Sicily, it is related to sorbet and italian ice. Its texture varies from city to city."
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups whole milk, divided
1 cup brewed espresso
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
pinch sea or kosher salt
1 tablespoon liquid pectin
1. Place a tall 16-ounce glass on the latte/cappuccino or travel cup tray. Using the lever, open the brew head, insert the capsule and close the brew head. Press the Long button to fill the cup (about a 1/2 cup.) Continue with remaining capsules.
2. Stir sugar into the hot espresso to dissolve and pour mixture into a freezer-safe container. Leave to cool to room temperature.
3. Once cool, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer. Every hour, for about 5 hours total, scrape the mixture with a fork to allow crystals to form.
4. To serve, layer equal amounts of granita and whipped cream in a parfait glass. Garnish with shaved chocolate.
