Granita - Ice Cream

Watermelon Granitas

Course Dessert
Servings 8


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 8 cups seeded watermelon chunks


  • Directions:
     Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse on low until blended and smooth.  Pour mixture into a 9″ x 13″ glass dish, cover with plastic wrap, and place in freezer for 3 hours. Remove from freezer and using a fork, scrape the top layer of the mixture, and around the sides, working toward the center, to loosen it from the pan.  The mixture will not be completely frozen. Return to the freezer for another 2 hours (set a timer if you have to). Repeat the scraping process again, repeating the freeze-scrape process until all parts of the mixture are frozen.  Once the entire batch is scraped into flaky crystals, you can serve, or store in the freezer in a tightly-sealed container for up to 1 day.
    Spoon into ice cream dishes, martini glasses or other stemware, with a garnish of your choice, and eat with a spoon like Italian ice. (Serves 8)
