Beet and Pineapple Granita

Beet Granita

For a simple way to stay cool this summer, try a refreshing granita. It has a smooth, velvety texture similar to sorbet and packs a lot of flavor in each bite. Try this tropical combination with the lime and pineapple, you won’t even know there are beets inside!

  • 8 ServingsServings


  • 1 jar Gold’s Unsalted Borscht
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple cubes
  • juice from 1/2 lime


In a blender, place the beets and juice from the borscht jar, sugar, pineapple, and lime. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes. Strain into a 9x13 baking dish and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 1 hour, scrape the granita with a fork. Repeat this process every hour for 4-5 hours, until it firms up completely. Serve as is, or layered with greek yogurt or whipped cream.

Note: you want to check on the granita every hour or so to make sure no ice crystals have formed on top.
