We’re continuing Frozen Treat Week with a super simple but elegant recipe: Coconut Hibiscus Granita. Refreshing and utilizing two summer trends – hibiscus flowers and coconut water. And don’t forget to enter today’s giveaway thanks to KitchenAid and King Arthur Flour! 
Summertime is all about simple, delicious desserts. Desserts like this Coconut Hibiscus Granita that can be served as an amuse (before your meal to tease the palette), as an intermezzo (to cleanse the palette), and as a full dessert course, which makes it the perfect summer recipe to have in your back pocket!
And honestly, it’s not even a recipe but a basic notion of balancing flavors. You want a sweet granita, in this case sweetened with the raw coconut water (naturally sweet) and the hibiscus syrup. Using those flavors as a base, you can now tweak the recipe with a bit of acid from your favorite citrus fruits, in this case we used lime juice. For a more adult dessert, serve in champagne flutes and splash in some St. Germain (elderflower liqueur). It’s floral and aromatic, pairing perfectly with the Wild Hibiscus syrup. Happy Summer, now go make some granita!
