Peach Granita Dessert!

For the end of summer, we need to grasp onto the last rays of sunshine, the last warmth, and never let it go! This dessert is very simple. It is within this simplicity that lay something so delicious, and grabs onto the true taste of summer. Enjoy the peach granite dessert we have put together for you!

Preparation takes a few hours.

Ingredients: serves 4-6
6 peaches
¾ cup water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 kiwis
1 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate
Sweetened condensed milk


Start by preparing the peaches, and by setting aside a baking tray.

Peel the peaches, cut up into pieces, while removing the center pit. Remove any extra hard pieces that may be left over. Puree the peaches in batches of thirds, so 2 peaches, roughly a third of the ¾ cup water, a bit of sugar etc., until everything has been liquefied together and poured onto the baking tray.

Place tray in the freezer so that it lays flush. Let freeze for a few hours.

Once frozen, prepare dessert by using two forks to scrape the frozen peach purree apart so it is like shaved ice. Peel and chop up the four kiwis. Place some of the granita into a bowl, and top with kiwi bits, and then shave some chocolate on top. The finale is drizzling some condensed milk over the top!
