You Needa Granita
Want to know the recipe for the most refreshing summer dessert ever?
I thought so.
(but you can try it with any ol’ fruit you like…peaches, blueberries, cantaloupe, strawberries…)
1/2 watermelon, rind and seeds removed (about 4 cups)
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups water
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan to make a simple syrup, dissolve over low heat, and allow to cool.
Working in batches, puree watermelon in blender until smooth. Pour mixture into 13x9x2-inch metal baking pan then mix in the juice of two limes and the simple syrup. Cover with plastic and freeze. Stir the mixture after one hour, then return to the freezer for another hour before stirring again. Allow to freeze for 6 hours or overnight. Scrape and serve.
