Hi. I’m just popping in real quick to say hello and to share this granita recipe with you. The weather is finally warming up here so cool summer treats like this one are on my mind. This granita is made with passionfruit pulp, cacao juice, pineapple juice and plenty of vanilla. What is cacao juice you ask? It’s juice pressed from the fruit of the cacao tree; the same tree that produces chocolate. The cacao fruit encases the cacao beans and is normally discarded as waste. Repurposed Pod is eliminating that waste by taking the fruit and turning it into juice for you to enjoy. It’s slightly sweet, full of tropical flavors, and packed with magnesium, vitamin B, and antioxidants. If cacao juice isn’t available at your local grocery store, I think substituting in plain kombucha would be just as good. Enjoy!
