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.
