On hot summer days we are always looking for new refreshing and if possible healthy recipes! We have just that for you: iced tea-based granita recipes. They can be consumed throughout the day without alcohol, or a small cocktail occasionally that can be spiced up with alcohol.

Mint and lemon green tea granita

The first recipe is very much inspired by the famous mojito, so there are two variations to this recipe, the one without alcohol and the one with.

The ingredients

50g of sugars (sugar can be replaced with a substitute such as agave syrup for example)
3 tablespoons of green tea
1 bunch of fresh mint
1 lemon juice (organic if possible)
60cl of filtered water


Mix the water and sugar and boil for 6 minutes
Remove from the heat and add the tea and 5 mint leaves
Let it steep for 5 minutes and filter.
Pour this preparation into a plate and place in the freezer for 3 hours. Regularly scrape off the glitter that forms as you go, with a fork.
Once the granita is well frozen, divide the granita among 4 dessert cups and garnish them with the remaining mint leaves.
For the alcoholic version, add 5ml (or less) of white rum per ice cream cup.
Serve and enjoy!

Raspberry and lemon granita

This favorite recipe can be enjoyed endlessly, refreshing and full of vitamins, it is perfect to sip by the pool, moreover it is ideal for young and old thanks to its tangy side.

The ingredients

500g raspberries (fresh or frozen)
300ml of water
a tablespoon of lemon tea or herbal tea (or 1 tea bag of lemon flavored tea)
70g of sugar (or substitute)


Blend about 500g raspberries until they are completely pureed. For a smooth and perfect result, you can simply mash the raspberries with a fork.

In a saucepan, melt 70 g of sugar over low heat with the 300 ml of water, and bring to a boil. Once this syrup is ready, pour it into a bowl and refrigerate.

Then mix the raspberry puree with the sugar syrup, add 50 ml of lemon tea infused water and a lemon juice

Pour the preparation into a shallow container, about 2.5 cm high at the most. Cover and place in the freezer, flat, for at least 2 hours to ice the mixture.

After 2 hours in the freezer, using a fork, scrape the crystals from the edge to the inside of the granita which is not yet completely frozen. Put the granita back in the freezer, repeat this operation 1 hour later, then again 1 hour later

Finally, after 4 hours of freezing, all you have to do is serve and taste the granita with a few raspberries for decoration!
