Healthy peach and ginger granita

Ripe, juicy peaches and fresh ginger make for a deliciously sweet granita. It's super easy and quick to make and low in calories, fat and salt, too.

Serves 4

Prep Time 5 min

Cooking Time 5 min + freezing


  • 750g fresh peaches, plus extra slices to garnish
  • 1tbsp lemon juice
  • 1tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2tbsp honey
  • 125ml apple juice
  • Mint leaves, to garnish


  1. Put a roasting tin in the freezer to chill for 30 min.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly score a cross on the base of each peach. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add the peaches and simmer gently for 2 min. Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon and transfer to a large bowl of iced water to cool. Once cold, carefully remove the skin with a small sharp knife and discard. Cut the peaches into chunks, discarding the stones. 
  3. Put the peaches, lemon juice, ginger, honey and apple juice in a blender and blitz until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin. Freeze, covered, for 2 hr or until frozen around the edges. Using a fork, scrape the mixture into icy granules. Return to the freezer for 2hr, scraping the mixture every 30 min. 
  5. Spoon the granita into chilled serving glasses, and top with a few peach slices and mint leaves to serve.
