Almond Granita

Almond Granita


  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds (about 3 ounces), toasted, cooled, chopped
  • 1/4 cup almond paste (not marzipan; about 2 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Recipe Preparation

  • Purée all ingredients with 1 1/4 cups water in a blender until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a 9x9x2" metal baking pan; strain, discarding solids. Freeze mixture for 1 hour. Stir, mashing any frozen parts with the back of a fork. Cover and freeze mixture until firm, about 2 hours. Using a fork, scrape granita vigorously to form icy flakes. DO AHEAD Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover tightly with foil and keep frozen. Give it a quick scrape before serving.
