Watermelon Granita Recipe

The net connection is still playing hide and seek with me. It works only for 3-4 hours a day so somehow managing time to post here within that time. Hopefully the issue should be resolved sooner.

When I was googling for mango froyo recipes, I accidentally saw this granita. So since a year it was lying in my bookmark folder and finally made it this summer.
Watermelon Granita Recipe

Granita involves no major cooking ...only the waiting time is more. This is a healthy and very lite dessert perfect for summers.With constant irregular power cuts making granita was a nightmare and clicking it in the hot sun was also challenging :)

Watermelon Granita Recipe
Watermelon Granita Recipe - Ingredients
Recipe Source : The Pioneer Woman
  • Watermelon - 2.5 cups(chopped)
  • Lime Juice - 1 tbsp
  • Sugar - 3 tbsp(adjust as per your liking)

Method
1.Cut the watermelon into halves and quarters. Then cut take out the flesh part alone. Chop into cubes and add it to the mixer with sugar and lemon juice.

2.Blend it together to form a puree(Dont add water). Pour the puree into a freezer safe bowl (such that it forms 1 inch layer)and freeze it for 1 hour atleast or till the crystals start forming. If the layer is more, the time for crystallisation will be more.

3.Break dwn the crystals and return it to the freezer and freeze it for 3-4 hours till the whole puree turns frozen. Now scrap it gently with a fork or spoon. Serve immediately.

While scrapping with fork it gives a more beautiful texture where the crystls are more finer. Either ways the granita is tasty and with no doubt will empty in minutes :)

My Notes:
  • I found scrapping with fork easier. Use spoon or fork as per your convenience.
  • You can even try this with musk melon , lemon or even strawberry.
  • Watermelon by itself has good water content in it so no need to add water.
  • You can even freeze it overnight if you have the patience ;)

  1. I think folks in your place are very well behaved. I cant imagine letting something this delicious sit in the freezer :) Beautiful clicks. Can totally understand the pain of powercuts, clicking in it and all that control.
