Pour equal parts water and sugar in sauce pan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Let mixture cool before pouring in recipe.
Empty GFruit jars into a strainer over a medium-sized bowl to remove seeds from pulp. Pour seedless GFruit pulp into blender with water, lemon juice, chopped mint leaves and honey or simple syrup (see recipe).
Once ingredients are thoroughly blended, pour the mixture into a flat glass container or punch bowl that can fit inside the freezer.
Add a few drops of grenadine or pomegranate juice into the mixture. With a fork or spoon, mix the ingredients to form a marbled texture. Be careful not to over blend.
Place the container in the freezer. Every 2 hours, swirl the mixture with a fork or spoon to create a swirled, icee effect.
Serve GFruit Icee in individual bowls, with mint leaf for garnish.
