Day 173: Coffee Granita

Yield: 2 cups
Time (Start to Finish): 4 hours

2 cups fresh strong brewed coffee
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp sugar
dash kalua

1 scoop vanilla ice cream

1. Take the coffee and add the vanilla, sugar and kalua (leave out if you are serving to kids! But you shouldn’t serve them coffee anyways..)
2. Put into a shallow bowl and into the freezer
3. Every 45 min, with a fork, go in and scrape to break up the crystals
4. When it is fully frozen and flakey, take out and put in a bowl or cup with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the center

Rating: 4 strawberries
Notes: I let it freeze a little too hard, so my scraping wasn’t so good, but this tasted delicious. Creamy, sugary, and coffee flavored. Use good coffee for a better taste. My favorite is gorilla from new york! I made this in the upper west side kitchen, and I swear it helped me stay awake for the craziness I got into!
