If you’re watching your weight, use low-fat light coconut milk.
If you’re planning on eating this as a dessert for a dinner, be sure that it’s the first thing you make so that it has enough time to freeze. You can also make granita ahead of time. Here’s how:
Put the fluffed granita into a container as per step 2 but leave it in the freezer. It will harden.
To serve: 10 to 15 minutes before eating, put the container in the main body of your fridge to soften it slightly. If you have a microwave, nuke it for 5-10 seconds, just as you would to soften hard ice cream. Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.
