Granitas are SO awesome...and so simple and easy to make at home.
How do you make them? Mix together the ingredients you want to include, freeze 'em, and then scratch it all with a fork. Sounds weird, but you end up with basically shaved ice, and you don't need any fancy or expensive machines!
Recipe: Mix together strong coffee, whole milk, sugar, and vanilla extract (optional). Freeze in a bowl. Scrape with a fork. Wayy easy. The proportions are up to you.
