If you’re looking for a cooling, comforting treat this summer, this Lemon-Basil Granita will knock your socks off. Now, I’ve mentioned before (in pretty much every recipe that uses it) how much I love basil. Like, I’ll put it in everything. The best desserts, salads, pizzas, and pastas I’ve ever had were all swimming in it. And it’s a good thing, because I started growing it last summer and was up to my ears in fresh basil. This granita became my go-to recipe to use all those leaves up before they went bad. With just a handful of ingredients and a super, super simple prep, it’s an incredible treat you can enjoy without much effort or investment.
