Mocha Granita Coffee Drink Recipe

In short, a granita is a coffee and chocolate slushy topped with whipped cream. 

Place coffee, sugar and vanilla bean in a saucepan and heat until sugar is dissolved. Do not boil.

Add cocoa and mix thoroughly.

Pour into a metal bowl and cool, then freeze in an ice cream machine according to manufacturers instructions.

If you want to make a "cruder" textured granita, pour the liquid into a cake pan and place pan in the freezer.

As the liquid is freezing, about every 30 minutes, stir the "liquid" with a fork to break up the ice crystals into smaller pieces.

Scoop frozen liquid into a tall glass, top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder, and enjoy.
