when this frozen Chocolate Chai Coffee Granita
recipe combines coffee
with masala chai
(or "chai tea") for a spicy-sweet flavor. It can be prepared as a slushie or as Italian shaved ice, depending on how often you stir it as it freezes.

- Mix the ingredients well in a shallow, freezer-safe dish.
- Optional: Cover the dish with a lid or with plastic wrap.
- Place the container in the freezer.
- After about one hour, scrape a fork through the mixture. Repeat every 45 minutes until the mixture is fully frozen. Scrape it less often for a chunkier mixture (like Italian ice) or more often for a smoother mixture (like sorbet).
- Enjoy immediately, or cover the container and scrape the granita once more before serving. Use within two weeks.
