Many people think that Lemon Granita is similar to a Lemon sorbet. There is a main difference which is the fact that Lemon Granita has no eggs, no milk and no cream in it. Just lemon juice, lemon zest, water and sugar! In Southern Italy we have a granita for breakfast, aperitif, lunch and as an after siesta drink. The best lemon Granita is made with little sugar and a grated lemon zest in it! For breakfast we would have a Coffee Granita with a croissant (the Sicilian way); for aperitif the Lemon Granita; after the siesta the almond granita. There are many flavors you can choose: lemon, mint, coffee, strawberry, almond, kiwi, mandarin, prickly pears.
