How I cool off with watermelons:
I had never eaten a watermelon granita before.
But now I have.
It was a good drink.
It is easy to make.
I think it is fun to make.
It was great!
• 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon
• 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.
