Cantaloupe Orange Turmeric Granita

This is a super fun and creative way to enjoy fresh fruit. As it cools down in the northern hemisphere it is warming up down here in Australia very quickly — I’ve gone from boots to singlets in no time — so this is a refreshing treat. Even if you’re approaching winter, you can enjoy this as a simple, delicious and healthy dessert or snack at any time of the day, including breakfast. This blend is high in natural vitamin A and rich in potent polyphenols and other plant compounds.


  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 1 cup (250 ml) coconut water
  • 1 inch (2.5 cm) piece of turmeric (optional)


  1. Juice oranges with a citrus juicer or regular juicer.
  2. Peel and remove the seeds from the cantaloupe and chop.
  3. Add all ingredients into the blender.
  4. Blend and pour into a large flat tin.
  5. Place in the freezer and remove 1 hour later and scrap with a fork then place it back into the freezer for another 45 minutes and repeat the process until you have a lovely snow-like consistency.
  6. Serve in a glass or small bowl to enjoy!
