    • Put them in a blender until they become a puree.

    •  Filter the purée to remove the seeds. I didn’t do it because I like the texture of the puree with all the seeds, but you can remove them if you wish.
    • Add the juice to the strawberry puree.
    • Add the sugar syrup and mix well.
    • Pour everything into a low glass container and place it in the freezer for 1 hr.

    • After an hour, remove the container from the freezer and scrape the mixture with a fork to break the formed ice crystals.

    • Put the container back in the freezer and do the same operation after 45 minutes for 4-5 hours.
    • Proceeding with these precautions, the granita will maintain a soft consistency and be easily scrapable.
    • When ready to serve the granita, remove it from the freezer and scrape the mixture with a fork or spoon.
