This sparkling and refreshing granita is perfect on a late summer’s afternoon, and it is served in an orange shell for extra flair and flavor!

Sparkling Orange Mango Granita


6 oranges, emptied and shells frozen

1 mango, peeled and pitted

1 bottle of Orange Mango Sparkling ICE

½ cup water

¼ cup sugar


Cut the oranges in half and scoop out the pulp for later use. A thin layer can be sliced off the bottom of the orange halves to create a flat surface and prevent them from rolling around when serving.

Freeze empty orange shells.

Note: For easier scooping, roll the oranges by hand before cutting in half, using a firm downward pressure to loosen the pulp.
