3 Ingredient Coffee Granita

It's hot.  It is crazy hot.  They say, "A dome of heat will bubble over the nation's midsection through the upcoming weekend and is set to expand east next week. Extreme heat is forecast to build across the central United States through the weekend and then spread to the Atlantic Seaboard."  They add we'll probably get into the 100's in many cities.  Awesome.  Here in Florida, the short walk from the air-conditioned house to the car already has you dripping with sweat.  Yick.  What are you doing to beat the heat?  I made this super simple only 3 Ingredient Coffee Granita and it is a terrific way to cool down... only try not to eat it shortly before going to bed. :)

3 Ingredient Coffee Granita
2 cups very strong coffee (or espresso)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla

Stir hot coffee with the sugar until sugar dissolves.  Then stir in vanilla.  Place in the fridge to cool the mixture.
Transfer coffee to the bowl of your ice cream maker and freeze according to your ice cream maker's directions (mine churned 25 minutes).  
Serve with whipped cream and caramel syrup for an extra treat!
