Pineapple and Grapefruit Frappe

Pineapple and Grapefruit Frappe


This recipe works with just about any fruit or combination of your choice because the principle is so basic. A frappe is basically a cross between a granita (like an icy Slush Puppy) and a smooth sorbet. As both pineapples and grapefruits can vary so much in natural sweetness, add the sugar to your own taste.

2 ripe pineapples, peeled and roughly chopped
3 grapefruits, halved and juiced
Sugar, to taste

Whizz up the pineapple in a liquidizer until smooth and pass through a course sieve. Add the grapefruit juice and stir in sugar to taste, remembering that the sweetness from the sugar will lessen slightly when frozen, so to use a touch more than you normally would. Place in the freezer for around 2 1/2 hours to set, stirring every 45 minutes.
