On those hot summer days doesn’t your mouth just water for something refreshing? Granita is an easy recipe that you can make with fruit for something light and fresh.
Being dairy-free I am always trying to think up great desserts or snacks. We had so much watermelon I decided to make Granita. Granita is a great frozen Italian dessert made from sugar, water and flavoring. With having so much watermelon I decided to make an icy treat!
Watermelon Granita is a light, refreshing dessert that can be made when you get up and ready to serve for your dinner party. This recipe serves 4 so by all means double it for some extra!
- 4 c watermelon
- 2 Tbs agave
- juice of 1/2 a lime or lemon (both are good depending on your taste preference)
- Blend all the ingredients together
- place in a freezable container and freeze for at least 4 hours
Scrape at the delectable dessert to loosen it from the container and split evenly into four dessert bowls. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a thin slice of whatever citrus you used. This dessert can be served on the slushier side. I decided I wanted it a little more frozen so froze overnight.
I cannot wait to try this recipe with other fresh fruit…YUM!
