Strawberry Granita

Strawberry Granita is an easy to make Italian frozen dessert. Having this on a hot summer day is divine.. I bought a box of strawberries last week to try this Granita. But we had severe thunderstorms and rain here in Missouri and it is sunny here today only after a long week. So finally made this yummy treat and it was over in no time 😉
