The Good News Natural-style apple juice—less filtered than regular—is high in vitamin C and antioxidants. Here, Emeril Lagasse transforms it into a refreshing granita.

  1. 3 cups natural-style apple juice
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  6. Pinch of ground allspice
  1. In a saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, 3 minutes. Pour into an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Freeze until icy around the edges, about 1 hour. Using a fork, scrape the icy shards into the center. Continue to freeze, stirring occasionally, until slushy throughout, about 3 hours longer. Scoop into bowls and serve.
