Granitas are so easy and simple. Just about any fruit juice can be seasoned with sugar and frozen in a tray, then raked with a fork to create a refreshing ice dessert.
The other thing about granitas is that they go well with sliced raw or poached fruit. Serve them in a nice glass for a stunning presentation.
Whisk together the pineapple, lime and ginger juice with the sugar until the sugar has completely dissolved. Pour the mixture into a shallow metal tray and freeze until firm. Remove the tray from the freezer and break up the ice with a fork to form the granita. Serve immediately, or freeze until ready to serve.
