Peach-Prosecco Granita

This light, refreshing ice tastes like the essence of peach. It makes a lovely dessert or first course.

Servings: 6


  • 1 1/4 lb ripe peaches, pitted and quartered
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup peach nectar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 tbsp Prosecco sparkling wine


  1. Combine the peaches, sugar, and nectar in a blender and puree. Strain into a bowl through a wire mesh sieve and discard any solids.
  2. Stir the Prosecco into the peach mixture and pour into a 13-inch x 9-inch baking dish. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and freeze until mixture is beginning to freeze at the edges, about 2 hours. Stir, with a fork, re-cover, and freeze until solid, about 3 hours, scraping with a fork every hour. To serve, scrape into soft clumps with a fork. Spoon granita into chilled glasses or bowls.
