  • 3 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup cream of coconut
  • coconut flakes for topping optional


  • In a blender, place the first 3 ingredients and process until smooth and the sugar dissolves.
  • Add this mixture to a metal pan plus the coconut milk and cream of coconut. Stir with a whisk.
  • Place in the freezer and after 30 minutes, break up the crystals that have formed. Using the tines of a fork, rake & stir the mixture every 30 minutes, scraping edges and breaking up any chunks as the mixture freezes, until granita is slushy and frozen, about 4 hours.
  • When is ready to serve, rake a fork through the granita one last time, add your toppings, and enjoy!
