Watermelon and Lime Granita Recipe : Season 3, Ep. 8

This Watermelon and Lime Granita is an icy cold slushy and sweet treat. It's the perfect ending to a meal and a refreshing way to stay cool all summer long.

Ingredients

Watermelon cubes 8 Cup (128 tbs) , deseeded (1
Sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Limes 2 , juiced

Directions

Making

Add lime juice and sugar to a blender. Then add some of the watermelon, until your blender is full. Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Pour about half of the mixture into a rectangular baking pan. Add your next batch of watermelon and blend again. Pour into the dish and give it a mix.

Freeze the mixture uncovered for 1 to 1 hours. Stir, mashing any frozen parts with a fork.

Freeze mixture until firm, about 2 hours. Scrape granita vigorously again to form icy flakes.

Cover tightly with foil and keep frozen.

Serving

Give it a quick scrape before serving.

Note:Every freezer is different so your freezing times may vary. Basically freeze and scrape, freeze and scrape. But do yourself a favor and don't check it too often or it will take too long.

Use any leftover watermelon to scoop out chunks with a melon baller to add to your granita. Garnish with lime slices and thin mini slices of watermelon.
