Icy, Fruit Dessert

For a refreshing treat that showcases the high-quality GOYA® Blackberry Fruit Pulp in all of its glory, we transform it into a granita. Similar to sorbet and Italian ice, grainta is a semi-frozen dessert that has a coarse, icy texture and doesn’t require a special ice cream machine. To do, freeze the fruit mixture in a shallow dish, stirring often, to develop a light, crystalline consistency.

Serves 6

Prep time: Less than 5 min.

Total time: 5 min., plus freezing time


1 pkg. (14 oz.) frozen GOYA® Blackberry Fruit Pulp, thawed

½ cup sugar

Whipped cream (for garnish)



1. In bowl, mix together blackberry fruit pulp, 1 cup water and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Transfer fruit pulp mixture to shallow glass baking dish; cover. 

2. Freeze, stirring with a fork every 30 minutes, scraping the edges of the plate and breaking up large clumps ice, until ice shards are light and fluffy and not frozen solid, about 3-5 hours. 

3. To serve, divide granita evenly among serving glasses; top with whipped cream, if desired.
