$5 Dessert: Blueberry-Ginger Granita

  • Prep Time 0:05
  • Cook Time 0:00
  • Estimated Cost $4.50

When it’s hot outside, it can be hard to imagine making a dessert involving heat. This light, refreshing, yet slightly spicy granita is my solution. Add vodka or rum for an instant blended cocktail.


  • 1 cup frozen blueberries $4
  • 1 small piece ginger, peeled and minced $0.50
  • 1 tbsp sugar (or more, depending on taste) Pantry
  • 5 cups ice cubes

Recipe Serves 2-3


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until fully incorporated. The consistency should be like a snow cone, not a smoothie, so add more ice as needed to achieve the proper texture.
  2. Serve in pretty bowls or glasses with a spoon.

Mmmm the blueberries could be even cheaper if you bought them in season and on sale! I’m going to make this tonight.
