Ingredients

Caster sugar

cup(s)

Unsweetened pineapple juice

1 cup(s)

Lime rind

2 tsp, finely grated

Lime juice

2 tbs

Low-fat vanilla yoghurt

280 g, (1 cup)

Fresh mint

cup(s), to garnish

Instructions

  1. Place sugar and ¾ cup (185ml) water in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir, without boiling, until sugar has dissolved. Increase heat to medium and bring to the boil for 2 minutes. Remove syrup from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Combine cooled syrup, pineapple juice, rind, lime juice and yoghurt in a shallow (about 25cm x 18cm; mixture should be about 3cm deep) freezerproof container. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight or until solid.
  3. Using a fork, scrape frozen mixture into icy granules. Return to freezer for 1 hour or until firm. Spoon granita into serving glasses and serve sprinkled with mint.
