Cool and Crisp: Watermelon-Lime Granita

June 24, 2010


For a refreshing summertime dessert, try Watermelon-Lime Granita. This is so easy and only 3 ingredients. How could you go wrong? Van from Boutwell Studios asked me on a podcast I did recently for Birmingham Magazine what he could do with his leftover watermelon. I thought this was a fabulous recipe to share. It’s so cool and refreshing and the perfect combination of watermelon and lime. My kids loved it!

Watermelon-Lime Granita

Prep: 10 minutes
Yield: 7 cups
7 cups seeded and cubed watermelon
1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
11/4 cup lemon lime soft drink (I used Sprite)
1. Process watermelon in a blender or food processor until smooth.

2. Stir together watermelon puree and remaining ingredients. Pour into a large glass bowl or 13-x 9-inch glass baking dish (or tupperware container). Cover and freeze 8 hours, stirring occasionally.

3. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving. Stir with a fork and spoon into a glass or serving bowls. Serve immediately.
