From the South Beach diet.
This frozen concoction is made with nutrient-dense blueberries but any berries will do. Coffee granita is good too but obviously not as healthy.
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar substitute OR real sugar
1 bag (10 ounces) frozen blueberries (frozen without added sugars)
1 lemon, peeled and juiced
Lemon twist, for garnish
1/2 cup low-fat frozen whipped topping (optional)
In a small pot over medium heat, combine the water and sugar substitute. Bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, then set aside to cool to room temperature.
In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the blueberries, lemon peel, lemon juice, and cooled syrup. Pulse for 2 minutes, or until the blueberries are coarsely ground. Pour into a small metal bowl and stir a few times with a fork to break up any large pieces.
Cover the bowl with foil and place in the freezer overnight.
Spoon into 6 serving glasses, garnish with a lemon twist, and top with the whipped topping, if desired.
