Pomegranate Granita

Known as a rich antioxidant, we used to find Pomegranate fruit in plenty in India. I remember my dad peeling the fruit and refrigerating the seeds making it easy for us to eat.Well, me and my brother are/were quite lazy to do this entire process but when my day peeled the seeds off, we used to devour it to the last seed.
I occasionally spot this fruit here in the States and when I do find it I find it rather expensive. POM juice is a good alternative which tastes like the fruit minus the cumbersome work of peeling.Yes, it is a little expensive but it tastes fabulous.And speaking of which, POM Wonderful sent me about 6 bottles of POM juice before I left for India.I was totally ecstatic when I received it. I had a couple of bottles left and made the Granita with it.

8 oz POM Wonderful juice
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
Zest of 2 limes
Juice from 2 limes

Combine water, sugar and zest and bring it to a simmer.
Combine lime juice juice and Pom juice.
Add the sugar syrup into the Pom juice
Pour into a bowl and freeze it.
After 2 hours, or when it freezes, bring out the bowl and mix it with a fork.
Put it back in the freezer for another couple of hours
When you bring it out and scrape, the ice should break into beautiful crystals
Serve with a dollop of a whipped cream.
