Candyfloss granitas recipe

Refreshing, fruity ices that the whole family will love – and you only need three ingredients! 

serves 6 
1½ Syns per serving 
ready in 15 minutes plus 7 hours freezing 


What you need: 

800ml strawberry-flavoured no-added-sugar still water  
250g fresh strawberries, hulled, reserving 3 to decorate  
25g candyfloss (suitable for vegans) 

What you do: 

1. Put the flavoured water and strawberries in your blender or food processor and whizz until smooth. Pour into a freezer-proof lidded container, then seal and freeze for 4 hours. Scrape the frozen mixture with a fork to form flaky chunks, and seal and freeze for a further 2 hours.  

2. Scrape the mixture again, then seal and freeze for 1 more hour. Scrape the mixture for a third time, then seal and freeze until you’re ready to serve.  

3. To serve, use a fork to rough up the mixture, if necessary. Spoon into 6 tall dessert glasses or bowls. Divide the candyfloss between the glasses or bowls, then halve the reserved strawberries, nestle them on top of the candyfloss and serve immediately.
