Experiencing Sicily's iconic la dolce vita

20 March 2024

Did you know that granita was first created in the 9th century?

In Sicily, during the hot summer season, the Arabs mixed ice with fruit, sugars and water, resulting in a grainy, refreshing treat. To this day, Sicilians make granita with local ingredients like almond and lemon to tantalise their taste buds.

While gelato contains milk or dairy, granita is simply made of fruit, juice and water - making it the perfect indulgence for those seeking a lighter, refreshing sweet treat or avoiding lactose.

Travel through time for a taste down memory lane with Stecco Natura Gelaterie, experiencing the natural and vibrant flavours of granita and Sicily's iconic la dolce vita.
