Crushed strawberries and cream

Granita with strawberry cream. I am Sicilian and nobody can deny that Sicily is the region's Queen’ of granite: coffee, lemon, almond, mulberry trees, strawberries. There are beaches for all tastes, with or without cream, accompanied by the classic brioche with the ' tuppo '. This to tell you that, as soon as temperatures become milder, start my ' marathon '. Today I did the strawberry granita, strictly with cream. And I swear that I will also make the brioche so you can enjoy Sicilian breakfast. I specify that my granita is really ' fercho’ Why not use water to dilute the juice of strawberries and not loving the very sweet granita, I'm a little’ stingier with sugar. Then try and see if, with doses of sugar we use, the granita is pretty sweet for you. If you like cakes with strawberries also try the Parfait with whipped cream and strawberry gelèe.
