An Icy Treat

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!

Ingredients:

  • 4 c watermelon
  • 2 Tbs agave
  • juice of 1/2 a lime or lemon (both are good depending on your taste preference)

Directions:

  1. Blend all the ingredients together
  2. 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!
