  • 4 ounces almond paste
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups almond milk (plus one additional cup for serving)
  • Optional: 4 ounces amaretto


  1. Break up the almond paste into quarter inch chunks and add to a blender.
  2. Pour the 1/4 cup of sugar and 3 cups of almond milk over the almond paste.
  3. Blend on high speed until the ingredients are well mixed. Stir with a spoon to make sure the almond paste is well blended into the milk.
  4. Pour blended almond mixture into two ice cube trays and freeze overnight.
  5. When ready to serve, add the frozen almond cubes to a blender and pour one 1/2 cup almond milk on top. Blend on high speed until the texture becomes a slush, adding 1/4 cup of almond milk at a time if the slush texture is a bit to dry.
  6. Scoop almond granita into four cups and serve with a spoon and a straw.
  7. Optional: You can make them boozy by adding 1 ounce of amaretto (almond flavored Italian liquor) to each glass.
