Light, refreshing, and the perfect summer treat! Lemon Granita is a classic, but add olive oil and you get flavor for days- if it lasts that long!

Lemon Olive Oil Granita

 1 cup sugar
 2 cups water
 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
 1/2 cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 Zest of one lemon
 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
 Fresh raspberries

Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat.


Bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar is dissolved- about 2 minutes.


Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Add the lemon juice and Colavita Olive Oil.


Pour into a metal cake or sheet pan and freeze.


Scrape with a fork starting after freezing for 30 minutes, and every 10 minutes after that (for a total of 2 hours) to break up the sugar crystals.


Serve in small bowls with a pinch of black pepper and fresh raspberries.
