Before we know it the temps are going to be soaring and we’ll all be looking for a cool down. No worries, I’ve got just the thing to ward off the heat – sweet, fresh Watermelon Granita.
Please don’t be intimidated by the name, it’s really just frozen fruit that’s been “shaved” with a fork thus turning 3 simple ingredients into something special. You can use pretty much any fruit to make a granita, I just happen to love watermelon. The summer heat will be here soon friends so grab some fruit, sugar and lime juice…a cool down will soon be on the way!
4 cups watermelon – cubed
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
Place watermelon, sugar and lime juice in a blender. Process until smooth.
Pour mixture into a a metal or glass pan and place in freezer.
After 1 hour, remove pan from freezer. Using a fork, scrape watermelon mixture. Place back in freezer for 1 hour.
When granita is frozen, scrape with a fork, scoop into a chilled glass and serve.
