Lime EVOO Ice Cream with Sour Cherry Granita
We think you will love these little individual serves of two great flavours that are fantastic together. Lime and cherries are wonderful on their own, but they are great flavour partners as well.
Both the granita and the ice cream are stand alone recipes but aren't they just cute as a pair? If you use dariole moulds for this recipe you will find them pretty easy to un-mould. Otherwise you could just freeze the desserts in pretty ramekins and serve them directly as is. But generally people do like seeing the layers.
You will need to start with the Cherry Granita if you are serving them together and turning them out from a mould, if not, finish with the granita so it is on top. It is easier to eat with the granita on top of the dessert, which ever way you end up serving them.
