The moro blood oranges were so stunning, I just had to make a granita out of them. A granita is an Italian semi-frozen dessert of sugar, water, and flavorings.
The blood oranges were sweet enough on their own though that I didn't add anything. Just pure-squeezed moro blood oranges.
Blood Orange Granita
As much freshly squeezed blood orange juice as you'd like, frozen
Then, with a fork or knife, break the frozen juice into large chunks. Coarsely chop in a food processor or blender. If you don't have one, you can mash it with a fork until the granita is the consistency you'd like. Serve on hollowed out halves of blood oranges if you wish.
Another gratuitous shot because I think it's just so pretty.
Or you can serve the blood orange granita in glasses.
Still so pretty either way.
