Instead of finishing a big meal with a rich dessert, Padma Lakshmi opts for this cold, fruity pineapple granita spiked with cayenne.

  1. One 3-pound pineapple—peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. Puree all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Pour the puree into a large, shallow baking dish. Cover and freeze until hard, about 3 hours.
  2. Using a fork, break the granita into chunks and transfer to a food processor. Pulse until light and fluffy, 1 minute. Transfer to bowls and serve immediately.
Notes One serving 73 cal, 19 gm carb, .5 gm protein, 2 gm fiber.
