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!
