Turning fresh fruit into tasty frozen desserts is quickly becoming a favorite hobby of mine. This strawberry lime granita is easy to make and incredibly refreshing during these hot summer days.
Since the watermelon lime granita was such a hit, let’s give it a try with fresh strawberries. This recipe only calls for a few simple ingredients, and it’s quite easy to make.
Fresh Strawberry Granita Recipe with Lime
We’ve had some blazing hot days this year which only increases my love for icy and slushy desserts. I’ve also been trying to hit up as many farmer’s markets as possible this year, which leaves us with a lot of fresh fruits and veggies.
In an effort to never waste fruit, it’s a great time to experiment with fresh berry desserts. Homemade popsicles, slushies, ice creams, and shakes are our jam over here, so why not throw icy granitas into the mix?
Serve up your granitas in fun glasses to enjoy poolside with friends, or just grab the container after a long day of yard work. That’s certainly been done here, and it’s perfectly acceptable behavior!
For another icy treat, try an exotic es teler. This Indonesian frosty fruit treat is sure to cool you down on hot days!

Strawberry Granita Recipe Notes and FAQ
Is a granita like a sorbet?
Sorbets are made in a machine and churned to eliminate ice crystals. With a granita, you want the ice crystals, so only a fork is used during the freezing process.
Can I use honey instead of maple syrup?
Yes, you can use honey in place of maple syrup. Agave is another option. The flavor may differ slightly, but either should be fine.
