Make the [Smoothie]. Cut each strawberry into 8 pieces and spread them out on a metal tray to freeze. Blend the frozen strawberries along with the other ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Make the [Granita]. Combine all of the ingredients and 60 ml of water in a pot and bring just to a simmer. Strain out the solids and pour the liquid into a metal tray, and freeze until solid. Once it has solidified, use a fork to break into small pieces.
Fill two glasses partway with [Granita], then place the white chocolate discs on top. Pour in the [Smoothie] and garnish with yuzu peel.
