Pomegranate-Lime Granita for C.L.U.E.

Cook, Learn, Undertake and EAT (also known as the C.L.U.E. Society) is a similar to the board game of CLUE.   It involves secrecy, fun, challenge and cooperation with the other game playing members. But don’t be alarmed, there are no murders in our society.


Here’s how it works:

Each month our members receive the name of a food blog and a theme. We lurk and hunt through our assigned blog to find a recipe that we adore and that fits the month’s theme.   For February’s posting for CLUE, we were tasked to find something red  (think Valentine’s Day, Heart Healthy or Red Carpet).



I would also be inspired by Miss Scarlett from the game of Clue.  I would look for something that would match her cool demeanor.  It might need to be something sparkly to match her wardrobe.  Red was a given.

With all these thoughts whirling through my head, I set off to explore Lawyer Loves Lunch, my assigned blog for February.

LLL (as I will refer to the author of Lawyer Loves Lunch) is a practicing attorney who turned to food and blogging as an escape and to “maintain some semblance of sanity”  in her hectic and chaotic life.

I looked through the desserts LLL had posted first and found some deliciousness. (Check out Mini Cheesecakes for what Ails Ya.) Then I saw directions on making your own yogurt and ultimately yogurt pops with berries.


But, then I found it!   And, it had Miss Scarlett plus February’s theme written all over it.   Not only was it red, it was also cool, sparkly, and delicious.  (And, apparently I am on a pomegranate kick because last month’s C.L.U.E. post featured pomegranates as a garnish.)

Pomegranate-Lime Granita
from Lawyer Loves Lunch

16 oz. pomegranate juice (Like POM Wonderful)
4 t. fresh lime juice (about half a large lime)
Touch of honey

Mix  ingredients and place in ice cream maker and freeze as directed.

Or, use LLL’s directions:

Mix all ingredients in freezer-safe bowl. Freeze for one hour. Take the bowl out and stir. Freeze for another hour, take the bowl out, and stir. Continue this process until mixture is frozen thoroughly and you have delicious POM flavored ice crystals. Spoon into a serving dish. Find a quiet corner and enjoy your treat before someone finds you and insists you share.

We haven’t made any ice cream or sorbet or sherbet in forever.   I really think the last time we utilized any of our ice cream makers was the Fourth of July.   Wow.  Seriously?

Thanks to LLL and CLUE, we enjoyed a cool and tart treat (kind of like Miss Scarlett) and we started anticipating warmer weather when we enjoy the frozen stuff often!
