Easy Grape Granita

Desserts
POINTS Value: 1

Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 0 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

The name of this classic Italian dessert means "little grains," a reference to the tiny ice crystals that make it cooling and irresistible on a hot summer day.

Ingredients
3 cup(s) grapes, red, seedless, frozen overnight until hard

Instructions
Transfer the fruit to a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Process until grainy but uniform, like millions of little ice crystals. Serve at once. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

Notes
You can swap strawberries for the grapes if desired.
For a treat, lay each serving on a bed of 2 tablespoons fat-free non-dairy topping (not included in POINTS values).
