Cucumber Mint Granita
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 4 cups peeled, seeded, chopped cucumber
  • 1½ teaspoon chopped mint leaves
  • ⅓ cup sugar (or to taste)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until the cucumbers are pureed. Turn on your ice cream maker and add the mixture. Mine only took about 10 – 15 minutes.
  2. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, pour it into a large flat container (a 9 x 13 inch pan works well) and freeze. About every 30 minutes stir and/or scrape the mixture to break it up. You can use a fork to “shave” it.
