BLUE MATCHA GRANITA
PREP TIME: 5 minutes
BLEND TIME: 1 minute FREEZE TIME: 3-4 hours
TOTAL TIME: 3-4 hours EQUIPMENT: ice-cube trays or 9-in x 13-in baking pan
1 ½ cups (355 mL) boiling water 1 ½ cups (355 mL) canned coconut milk or whole milk ¼ cup (48 g) granulated sugar 2 teaspoons blue matcha powder
sweetened condensed milk (for drizzling)
Place all the ingredients (except for sweetened condensed milk) into the blender jar of your KitchenAid® K400 Blender. Secure lid and turn to speed 2.
Pour mixture into ice cube trays and place in freezer until set, about 3-4 hours.
When ready to serve granita, place all frozen cubes in the jar of our blender. Secure lid and set to Ice Crush setting. Blend, stopping to scrape the sides of the jar as needed, until no large chunks remain. You can also use the Pulse function.
Divide between 3-4 glasses, drizzle tops with 2-3 Tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk, and serve immediately.
If using a 9-in x 3-in baking pan, make sure the pan lays on a flat surface in the freezer so it freezes evenly. Also, before blending, use a fork or bench scraper to break mixture into small 2-in pieces that will fit into the blender.
