  1. In a blender, blitz the pineapple, lime juice and zest with 150ml cold water until smooth. Finely slice the mint leaves and stir through the mixture. Pour into a 20 x 30cm freezer-safe container and freeze for 3-4 hrs or until set, breaking up the granita with a fork every hour.
  2. When the granita is ready, the mixture will be frozen with flaked shards of ice. Divide between glasses or bowls and top with the yogurt and a drizzle of honey. Garnish with the mint sprigs.
