Watermelon Lime Granita
Last week I devoted a majority of my time helping with my beloved uncle Victor's funeral. Being out for many hours a day made my body heat up. I had to find something to cool my body down. Watermelon is a great answer; it contains lots of water. Yes, I can just cut it into wedges, and eat just like that. However I wanted to give it a little more love, so I made a watermelon and lime granita. My version doesn't have any types of sugar or sweetener. You will be fully impressed with the freshness and natural sweetness of the watermelon itself. The lime juice gave the granita a tangy flavor. If you are ready to for this super easy and refreshing treat, let's make it!
4 cups Seedless Watermelon, chunked
1/2 Lime, juiced
1. Cut watermelon into small chunks.
2. Juice the lime. If you like tangy flavor, add juice from a whole lime. I only need half for mine because I don't want the lime flavor to overwhelm the watermelon.
3. Add lime juice and watermelon chunks in a blender. Blend until well combine.
4. Pour the mixture in a baking pan or dish, cover and freeze for 2 hours.
5. Take it out and rack the mixture. Put it back into the freezer and freeze for another 2 hours then rack it again.
6. Ready to serve! Scoop it in a glass garnished with mint leaves and watermelon balls.
