Orange Granita con Champagne Mango con Panna

Oh, blessed accidents! Thai Coconut Milk Granita was sold out so I ended up going with Orange Granita. Let me tell you, I'm not unhappy. Everyone knows how much I love the Granita con Gelato. It is like Rita's for adults. But this Orange Granita is, as the kids say, bangin. This was the first time I've been given a straw with my Granita and it really helps. Capogiro has found the perfect blend of juice to water to freeze so the Granita is able to melt without making the flavor too watered down. Plus, somehow, the acidity is not that high. I suspect I have the fresh whipped cream to thank for that. Oh, and, I'd rather have a scoop of Champagne Mango on top than a preserved cherry any day of the week. A fantastic summer treat that is light and that doesn't weigh you down with fat. [Author's Note: The fat in Gelato slows me down, but I do understand that other people are weak--I mean healthy ;) ]

  4. That sounds amazing. Unfortunately, I'm unavail for the next few Mondays. But I'll definitely swing through in late September or early October.
