Granizado de café

I learned of granizados when I lived in Spain. They are water-based, dairy-free frozen treats with a slush like texture. One of the most traditional granizados is lemon flavored, but when it is hot, a granizado de café is a wonderful way to get your coffein hit and a cool treat at the same time. Classically the liquid is put in the freezer and has to be scraped every thirty minutes. This makes it quite time consuming. But if you own a blender or smoothie maker you can side track this easily and have a treat whenever you like it with minimal prep time!
