Protein Packed Raspberry Granita Parfaits

This Mess Is Ours

Yes, you read that title right...Protein Packed Raspberry Granita Parfaits! This 5-ingredient frozen treat is delicious to eat and simple to make. It's also packed with 20 grams of protein! How on earth did we do it? It's easier than you might think.

Granita is an Italian frozen dessert that's traditionally made by hand. Because of this, the texture is coarser and flakier than other frozen treats! It's crunchy at first and then melts in your mouth with a burst of flavor.

- whipping cream - vanilla extract - raspberries - bee pollen, optional

The Traditional Way

Pour the raspberry Protein Clear drink into a shallow baking dish. Place into the freezer for 30 minutes then use a fork to gently rake through the any ice crystals that have formed. 


Place back into the freezer for another 30 minutes and repeat the process of raking the fork through the ice crystals to break them up. Repeat this process for a total of 2-3 hours until no liquid remains.

The Whipped Cream

Place the whipping cream and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer and whip on high until stiff peaks form.

Make the Parfaits

In a small glass, scoop in a few tablespoons of whipped cream, top with the prepared raspberry granita, and add fresh raspberries on top. Sprinkle with bee pollen if using. Serve immediately.

Don't let the prep time scare you, this dessert does most of the work itself in the freezer! Also, don't limit yourself to just one flavor when it comes to making granitas. You can use this method to make a granita from any type of fruit juice.

Honestly, I'm just gonna keep these raspberry granita parfaits on repeat for the entire summer season. They were the first dessert in quite sometime to receive a whopping 8 thumbs up from my family
