Blackberry and limoncello granita

  • Total time: 5 minutes, plus 3-4 hours freezing
  • Serves:6


    450g blackberries
    60g caster sugar
    1 tbsp limoncello
    1 tbsp lemon juice


    1. Put all the ingredients in a blender with 150ml water and blend until smooth. Pass through a sieve into a large container.

    2. Freeze the mixture until the edges begin to set – about 30 minutes. Use a fork to break up the frozen parts.
