What You Need

For Granita

  • 2 pounds Ripe Peaches⁠

  • 1/3 cup White Sugar⁠

  • 1 cup Water⁠

  • 1 tsp Lemon juice⁠

  • 1/8 tsp Somersault⁠

For Caramel Sauce (or you can substitute your favorite Vegan Caramel Sauce!)

  • 3 Jolly Acres Caramels (we prefer they Cayenne Caramels!)

  • 2 Tbls Milk (we used Goat Milk)⁠

What To Do

  • Take the pits out of your peaches and place them in a blender with your Sugar, Water, Lemon Juice, and Somersault. Puree until smooth.

  • Pour the mixture into a large pyrex baking dish. Should be less than an inch deep in the baking dish. Place the dish in the freezer and set a timer for 45 minutes.

  • After 45 minutes take a fork and scrape the edges into the center of the dish, using the tines of the fork to break up any clumps.

  • Repeat this process every 45 minutes for 2 to 4 hours until the mixture is flaky and scoopable. ⁠


  • When you think its going to be your final 45 minutes, start your caramel sauce.

  • Put a sauce pan on medium heat and Pour in the milk. Add 3 caramels and stir until melted.

  • Turn the heat to high and stir vigorously, allowing caramel sauce to bubble and froth.

  • Turn off the heat and allow to cool.⁠

​​

  • Take your granita from the freezer and scoop into bowl. Spoon the caramel on top and sprinkle with Somersault.

  • For extra texture and flavor try adding nuts or freshly sliced fruit!⁠

  • Enjoy!
