Delightful Recipe: Watermelon Granita
Low calorie watermelon granita is very refreshing on a hot summer day.
Watermelon, a bit of sugar and a squeeze of lime
combine to form a tasty low calorie frozen treat.
4 cups seedless watermelon cubes
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
Place the watermelon, sugar and lime juice in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish and place in the freezer.
After 20 minutes, use a fork to rake the mixture, scrapping the frozen edges into the middle. Continue to freeze for 2 hours, raking with a fork every 20- 30 minutes, until completely icy. Serve in scoops garnished with a sprig of mint leaves.
