Granita is much like an icee. You can make it from just about anything you desire! This one is made from watermelon and is very, very refreshing! Great for any hot summer day! Here is what you will need for this:
6 cups chopped watermelon
1/3 cup simple syrup
2 TBS lemon juice
Place the watermelon, syrup and lemon juice in a blender. Blend – working in batches. Pass the blended fruit through a sieve into a bowl. Squeeze the pulp in the sieve to use all of your fruit. Get rid of the pits.
Place the juice into a 13×9 rectangular dish. Place the dish into the freezer and freeze for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and scrape with a fork. Repeat this process every 30 minutes for 3 hours – until you have an icee.
Serve your granite in a nice glass. Garnish with some watermelon rind. Enjoy!
You can make this from many kinds of fruits such as lemon, grapefruit or peach.
