3. What is the difference between a Sorbet and a Granita?

A – A Sorbet is a frozen dessert that is made from fruit purée and liquid but no milk or dairy products.  Sorbet is repeatedly whipped to lighten and smooth its texture. A Granita is also a frozen dessert similar to a sorbet and it also does not contain milk.  It is not whipped and ice crystals are allowed form. It therefore has a more granular appearance, and a crunchy texture.  (Go to for more info)
