Watermelon Granita-Ah Refreshing!

Cool off this weekend with this easy to make Watermelon Granita. A simple three ingredients dessert will deliver a big flavor payoff. Try garnishing with a wedge of watermelon.


•    4 cups (1 3/4 pounds) cubed seedless watermelon (from a 4 pound melon)

•    1/2 cup sugar

•    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a 9x9x2″ metal baking pan.

Freeze mixture for 1 hour. Stir, mashing any frozen parts with the back of a fork.

Cover and freeze mixture until firm, about 2 hours. Using a fork, scrape granita vigorously to form icy flakes.

DO AHEAD: Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover tightly with foil and keep frozen. Give it a quick scrape before serving.

yield: Makes 6 servings
