Coffee Granita


  • 4 cups cold coffee
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cream, half-and-half, or milk


  • Stir until the sugar is dissolved (or add it while the coffee is still warm and then chill). Pour the chilled coffee mixture into a pan that can go in your freezer. 
  • Set the timer for 30 minutes or so and stir the mixture. Keep setting your timer and stirring until it's frozen but broken up into small shard-like pieces. If you have leftovers, they'll freeze solid but you can scrape them with a fork to break them up again into pieces.
