This is as easy & simple as it gets! Just 4 basic ingredients to whip up a refreshing treat on these scorching hot Summer days!

Into a small saucepan goes 125g of blueberries & cover those with a wee bit of water before adding in 2 tablespoons of caster sugar & the juice of a lemon.

Pop the pan onto a medium heat to cook until the blueberries are just popping open & the sugar has dissolved.

Turn off the heat & grab good old Mr Buzzy (aka stick blender) to whazz that mixture to a smooth liquid consistency.

Pour it into a freezer proof container & place in the freezer to set, stirring with a fork every 20 minutes.

The Granita is set when it has changed colour & all the liquid is gone.

Of course, you could just pour the blitzed puree into ice-cube trays & use it to cool down beverages too.
