We should chill a little with some Chai Spice Coconut Granita…just you and me and multiple trips to the freezer.
Chai Spice Coconut Granita is made with coconut milk, coconut water and Jade Monk Chai Spice matcha tea powder. Three ingredients, a bowl, a sturdy fork, time: that’s all you need for this recipe. Use a freezer-friendly bowl that allows the liquid to spread out and be somewhat shallow. I used a stainless steel round bowl that measures nine inches in diameter and just over an inch deep. You want the liquid to be shallow so it’ll freeze faster.
I often have a half cup of coconut milk leftover from making The Crabby Feeyancee, a weeknight summer staple around here. This recipe uses up that little, leftover half cup and you get a super light, refreshing, pale green granita as a bonus. Boom.
Who doesn’t love some naturally begotten green?
Chai Spice Coconut Granita even goes well with the Crabby Feeyancee. Comforting chai spice, an undertone of green tea and silky, smooth coconut milk get suspended in thin, icy flakes. Jade Monk snow.
Matcha mountains. Thank you, Jade Monk, for sending me your awesome green tea powders. Clearly I was inspired by them.

Recipe: Chai Spice Coconut Granita
Summary: Light, refreshing, smooth granita flavored and zipped up with Chai Spice Jade Monk matcha tea powder
- 1/2 cup coconut milk *I used full fat
- 1/2 cup coconut water
- 1 packet of Jade Monk Chai Spice matcha tea powder
- Whisk all the ingredients together in a metal bowl *any freezer proof bowl will do but a stainless bowl speeds up the freezing
- Put in freezer and scrape with a fork every 30 minutes three to four times. You should have little frozen flakes. If your granita gets too hard to scrape then leave it out for a few minutes to thaw slightly and it should be good to scrape again.
- Relax, chill. Enjoy
