Watermelon Granita

My watermelon granita is a sweet and fluffy ice crystals that melts in our mouth giving a cool and refreshing feel.



This is one my favorite low fat dessert to enjoy any time of the day. Love to have granita ready in my freezer, so that I can gulp a spoonful when ever I need something cool and sweet.

Once the watermelon is cut and the left over are stored in the refrigerator for few days, the fruit will loose some of its sweetness. Or some times the fresh watermelon by itself will be little bland in taste, granita and watermelon juic are the best way to use up these watermelons.



Ingredients :

Watermelon chunks (seedless) - 5 cups
Sugar - 2 tablespoons or less depends upon the sweetness of the fruit.
Lemon juice - 2 teaspoon




Procedure : 

Puree the watermelon chunks and strain the pulp. Mix sugar and lemon juice to the watermelon juice. Taste the juice for sugar.

Now pour the juice into a wide bottom pan and freezer for an hour. Now remove the pan from the freezer and with the fork scrape the ice crystals. It will be like a shush at this stage. Return the bowl to the freezer and again in one hour scrape it again. Scrape totally for 3 times for every 1 hour. At the end of 3 to 4 hours the slush will look like flavored shaved ice. Now scoop the ice in serving cups.
