Frozen fruit ices fall into two categories - those that are stirred very little during freezing (granitas), and those that are stirred often during freezing (sorbets). Stirring adds air bubbles and lightens and softens the texture of the finished product. Granitas are characteristically grainier, with larger ice particles. Sorbets are smoother and softer, closer to ice cream in texture.
