Recipe Type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 2 cups International Delight Iced Original Coffee (or your favorite iced coffee creation)
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate liqueur
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • Whipped Cream
  • Cocoa powder, for garnish
for the Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon white chocolate liqueur
Instructions
  1. Combine iced coffee, 2 tablespoons of the liqueur, and lemon zest in an 8-inch square baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer on a level surface.
  2. After about 20 minutes, scrape ice crystals with a fork. Repeat about every 20 minutes until all of the mixture is frozen into a pile of flaky ice crystals. Allow mixture to sit in freezer for an additional 15 minutes to firm up before serving.
  3. Divide among 4-6 glasses and top with whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder for garnish.
for the Whipped Cream
  1. Place heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of white chocolate liqueur into a mixing bowl and whisk (I use my stand mixer... and electric hand mixer also does the trick) just until the cream reaches stiff peaks.
Notes
If making granita ahead of time, keep frozen and then just fluff with fork again before serving.
