    • Preparation time: 5 minutes, plus 3-4 hours freezing
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • 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. Freeze again, repeating the breaking-up process every 30 minutes, for about 3-4 hours, until the mixture resembles fluffy crystals. Serve the granita straight away or freeze until needed.
