The perfect ending to dinner is a light dessert. That's why we partnered with Garnier Whole Blends for this recipe inspired by ingredients in its products.

I love a light dessert in the Summer that doesn't leave you feeling like you made horrible decisions during dinner. Refreshing, full of flavor, and beyond easy to make, this recipe for cranberry-coconut granita bursts with flavor and is just the right amount of sweet thanks to a big drizzle of honey. Serve with toasted coconut flakes and a touch of mint, which turns into a stunning scoop thanks to the color palette. It's almost too pretty to eat.

From Sarah Lipoff, POPSUGAR Food

Cranberry-Coconut Granita


  1. 2 cups cranberry juice
    2 cups coconut water
    1 tablespoon honey
    1/4 cup toasted coconut flakes
    Mint for garnish


  1. Mix together the cranberry juice, coconut water, and honey in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Place in the freezer for one hour.
  3. Remove the granita mixture and stir with a fork, breaking up any chunks that have begun to form. Place back in the freezer.
  4. Continue the process until it has set, up to four hours. The texture should resemble fine sand.
  5. Scoop into serving bowls and top with the shaved coconut and mint sprig. Serve immediately.
