What's in it

Ingredients

2 cups fresh strawberries, halved
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. Stevia powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
6 oz. vanilla yogurt

How to cook it

Directions

  • Puree all ingredients except yogurt in a food processor or a blender.
  • Place in a shallow container, cover and freeze for 1 hour. Remove from freezer and scrape the frozen areas of the granita using a fork. The center may be soft, return to the freezer for 1 hour and scrape again. Repeat as necessary. Serve with a dollop of vanilla yogurt.
  • Any unused granita will solidify once again in the freezer after a period of time. To serve, allow to defrost at room temperature for about 10 minutes and fluff with fork.
