“An AMAZING recipe from blog Food52.... Just four ingredients and three simple stages and you have an inexpensive dessert that's easy enough to whip up for your kids and impressive enough for special guests. You can add a little sugar or more honey to the yogurt if you'd like, but I love the tart saltiness against the bright citrus/mint of the granita.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine feta, 6 ounces of greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon of honey into a freezer safe bowl. Beat with immersion blender until they are smooth. A few tiny chunks of feta are fine.
  2. Stir in the remaining yogurt, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze until solid, 2-3 hours.
  3. Zest blood oranges into a bowl. Cut blood oranges in half and add juice and pulp. Add a handful of mint leaves to the bowl and blend with immersion blender or food processor until thick and juicy. Strain and reserve juice only.
  4. Pour juice into a freezer safe baking dish with lots of surface area, like a 9x13x2 pan. Freeze for 2 to 3 hours, checking every 30 minutes to rake through with a fork. You should finish with red flakes of ice.
  5. Set out frozen yogurt 10 minutes before serving as it gets quite hard. Top with granita, a drizzle of honey and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
