    • Yes, make it like a granita. Follow the instructions and instead of putting it in an ice cream maker, pour it into a 9 x 13 pan. Place in the freezer for two hours. Take it out and scrape it until its shaved or if its still very loose, move it around a bit. Place it back in the freezer for two more hours. Scrape it again. Leave it in the freezer for another few hours and scrape it into bowls. The consistency should be like shaved ice. Very refreshing.
