Strawberry and Mango Yogurt Granita

Frozen but served © Cookaroo
A couple of months ago I was talking to my mother about making this three ingredient Mango Banana Gelato  I had seen on a Donna Hay show. Because of how easy it was, she got plenty excited. She had plenty of strawberries and bananas frozen and she was looking to do something more with it, than just making smoothies.

She hung the the yogurt, bought mangoes and chopped them and froze then, and the evening I was coming over to visit, she blended and froze the whole thing. Except she forgot to throw in the bananas, so the gelato wasn't smooth enough.

So when we began to scrape it out of the bowl, we realised we'd made this super awesome granita which had tartness from the strawberries and super sweetness from the mangoes. All in all, it was just lovely. I took half of it home and ate it for breakfast and then after dinner with some fruit.

Lovely, easy and versatile, this is an awesome addition to the freezer
