Ingredients

Granita

  • 1lb Strawberries (Fresh And Sliced)
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Infused Balsamic Vinegar (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 3 tablespoons Splenda (May substitute for agave nectar)

Granita (Optional)

  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice (Freshly squeezed)

Chantilly Creme

  • 12oz Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup Powder Sugar (Or to desired sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Directions

Granita
Step 1
Wash, hull and slice the berries thinly to allow maximum soaking.
Step 2
In a large bowl, toss the sliced berries with sweetener (sugar, splenda) if desired.
Step 3
Pour Dark Chocolate Balsamic over berries until evenly coated and submerged.
Step 4
Let berries marinate in Chocolate balsamic at room temperature for up to 5 hours, tossing and stirring periodically. You will notice the natural sugars and red hue of berries beginning to seep into the balsamic, creating a syrup-like texture.
Step 5
Once the correct sweetness and thickness is achieved, transfer berries and balsamic to a food processor and blend until completely smooth
Step 6
Additional fresh berries may be added during the blending process to achieve richness of color.
Step 7
Pour mixture into a glass baking pan and store in freezer until completely frozen. To serve, scrape the Granita mixture with a fork, achieving a granulated texture
Chantilly Creme
Step 8
In a large mixer bowl using a whisk attachment, whip the cream at high speed until thickness develops.
Step 9
As the whip develops, slowly add confectioners sugar or sugar substitute gradually – to taste.
Step 10
Finish by whipping in vanilla extract – can be served by spoon or via piping bag for an elegant look.
