Tangerine & Basil Yogurt Granita

Serves 6


2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup tangerine juice
½ cup basil leaves, chopped
1 cup plain Greek style yogurt


Make a simple syrup in a medium saucepan by combining the sugar, water, tangerine juice and chopped fresh basil. Bring to a boil until sugar dissolves, simmer for 5 minutes, take off burner, cool, strain, and set syrup aside. Whisk together simple syrup and  yogurt until a smooth texture forms. Pour into a low dish and freeze. Using a fork, scrape puree every 20 minutes while it freezes. This should create flaky crystals. Keep frozen dish covered while freezing. Freeze and scrape until desired consistency.
