Refreshing Lime & Mint Granita


Recipe Info

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 24m
  • Ready In : 3:24 h

Light and refreshing, perfect to enjoy on a hot afternoon.


  • 500 mL Water
  • 2/3 cup(s) White Sugar
  • 8 Sprigs Mint
  • 300 mL vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice


Step 1

Mix golden syrup, vegetable shortening, and salt in a large bowl. Beat in vanilla extract and cornflour.

Step 2

Slowly stir in icing sugar, about 1 cup at a time, mixing in the sugar thoroughly each time before adding the next cup. Fondant will become increasingly stiff; if too sticky, add more cornflour and icing sugar to make an easily-workable dough.

Step 3

Turn fondant onto a work surface generously dusted with cornflour; roll to desired thickness or work into desired shape.
