Giada De Laurentiis has just given us a saving grace: a simple coffee desert to help us through those exhausting weekdays.
On June 16, Laurentiis posted a video of a coffee-based treat we need right now on her Instagram page @thegiadzy. She posted the short video with the caption: “When the weather warms up, do what they do in Sicily and consider it granita season! This recipe does double duty as a coffee-based pick-me-up and sweet treat all in one. Read the #recipe in our stories or search for “coffee granita” on giadzy.com!”
The comment section was all about this, with fans proposing to add Kahlua if you want booze in your pick-me-up. But Laurentiis recommends Limoncello or Amaretto if you want to add some spirits (note!)
With a preparation time of just 10 minutes, this super easy decaf recipe uses ingredients such as hot coffee, sugar, limoncello and salt, to name a few.
The beginner-friendly recipe can easily serve six people, with everyone indulging in this delectable treat. Laurentiis recommends starting the recipe by stirring all the ingredients in a bowl and in no time you’ll be adding a dollop of a topper of your choice to lock in the luscious flavor.
