This granita is a perfect way to use up leftover pineapple. It has 3 ingredients, and loads of flavor. You don’t need an ice cream maker, just a sweet, ripe pineapple and some time in the freezer. This version is kid-friendly but this recipe would be fantastic as a cocktail with a splash of vodka, a refreshing summer drink.
