Make Blueberry Compote Granita using this recipe brought to us by Cook for Your Life!


If you are on a neutropenic diet, you can't eat raw fruit. It has to be cooked. In the summertime this can be a little depressing, but don't despair! The blueberries in this yummy iced dessert are cooked first into homemade compote, to make a simple fruity dessert everyone can enjoy, in or out of treatment.

Meal: Dessert

Serves: Makes about 5 cups

Prep: 20 - 30 min

Main Ingredient: Berries


  • 1⅓ cup Blueberry Compote
  • ½ cup cold water
  • ¼ teaspoons freshly grated ginger (optional)


1. Puree the compote, water and ginger until smooth. Taste for desired sweetness.

2. Pour the blueberry mixture into a 9- x 9- x 2-inch glass baking pan and put into the freezer. After 30 minutes, with a fork scrape the icy pieces. Every 30 minutes continue to scrape until you have a flaky light texture. Serve or keep in an airtight container in the freezer, scraping every so often to keep a light texture.
