Granita is one of the easiest ways to make a frozen treat without an ice-cream maker. Lychees, ginger and grapefruit will soothe your palate with an icy pop of sweet and tart.
Put the sugar, ginger and 250 ml (
Put the drained lychees, reserved juice, ginger syrup and lime and grapefruit juices in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a shallow dish and freeze until the outer edges of the granita set. Scrape with a fork to break up the ice crystals, then return to the freezer and repeat the scraping every 30 minutes until it is a gravel-like consistency. Serve the granita with fresh berries and a spoonful of soft whipped cream or Greek-style yoghurt.
