Blueberry-Basil Granita


  • 2 cups of blueberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 4 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  1. Heat a saucepan on medium. Add fresh or frozen blueberries, water and basil leaves. Heat for 2 minutes or until warmed through. Stir in agave nectar/sugar and lemon juice.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat and allow basil to steep for 10 minutes. Remove basil leaves and add steeped liquid into a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Strain liquid through a fine sieve into a freezer-safe container. Freeze for 2 hours.
  4. Begin the granita process of lightly scraping the top frozen layer with a fork. Return to freeze and continue scraping for every 30 minutes until the entire concoction is scraped.
  5. Serve granita in a fancy glass, garnished with blueberries, basil leaves and lemon zest.
