Sparkling Orange Mango Granita Recipe

To help you enjoy more citrus fruits this month, here is a delicious recipe featuring Orange Mango Sparkling ICE; a zero calorie naturally flavored sparkling water with vitamins and healthy antioxidants.


Ingredients

6 oranges, emptied and shells frozen
1 mango, peeled and pitted
1 bottle of Orange Mango Sparkling ICE
½ cup water
¼ cup sugar


Preparation
  • Cut the oranges in half and scoop out the pulp for later use. A thin layer can be sliced off the bottom of the orange halves to create a flat surface and prevent them from rolling around when serving.
  • Freeze empty orange shells.
Note: For easier scooping, roll the oranges by hand before cutting in half, using a firm downward pressure to loosen the pulp.

Directions:

Place chopped mango in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the water, Sparkling ICE and sugar, and stir to dissolve. Pour mixture into deep-sided metal or glass pan. Place it in the freezer, uncovered. When the top of the liquid forms an icy layer, scrape through entire pan with a fork every 30 minutes. Return to freezer and let another frozen layer form; scrape again with fork. Repeat freezing and scraping steps until all liquid is frozen. Remove from freezer, and scrape surface with the tines of a fork until it is the texture of shaved ice. Fluff with a fork to create soft granita. Repeat this process every 30 minutes for 3 to 4hrs. Put mixture in frozen oranges and serve.



Sparkling ICE is a zero calorie beverage combining naturally flavored sparkling mountain spring water, fruit juices, vitamins and antioxidants. Available in eight flavors: Black Raspberry, Orange Mango, Kiwi Strawberry, Pink Grapefruit, Coconut Pineapple, Lemonade, Pomegranate Blueberry, Lemon Lime, Sparkling ICE can be found in retailers nationwide.
