To make a Sparkling Strawberry Granita, here's all you do...

In a blender, combine a pound of strawberries, two cups of lemon-lime soda, lemon zest and lemon juice. Blend until pureed.

Return the dish to the freezer and freeze for at least an hour longer.  Remove the dish from the freezer and scrape the icy puree with the fork again.

Creamy and intensely satisfying!

Another way I love to use lemon-lime soda is in these sweet and festive low calorie fruit filled ice cubes. Such a pretty way to add a little color to your drink plus, it's a great way to sneak a little fruit into your kid's diets!

All you do is...

Combine 6 ounces of raspberries, 6 ounces of blueberries and 1/4 cup of lemon-lime soda in a blender and blend until smooth.

Fill a pitcher with lemon-lime soda and add in the ice cubes.  It's fun to watch the lemon-lime soda turn to the pretty shade of pink.
