Watermelon Granita is an easy yet a "time consuming" dessert with the end result being just refreshing during the peak summers. With "time consuming" I mean - to make Granita every 2 to 3 hours gap , it has to be removed from the freezer and broken into small crystals and again to be freezed and again the same method is repeated 2 to 3 times to get a perfect Granita dessert. This is actually the method to make a simple Granita.
Granita is made with fresh fruits and best with the summer season fruits like watermelon, muskmelon, lemon, strawberries and many more.
Makes 2 small dessert cups of Granita...
Watermelon chunks / cubes 1 cup
Lemon juice 1 tbsp
Sugar 2 tbsp or as per preferred

Take it out now, and try to break it with a fork and crystals like chunks will be seen. Our watermelon Granita is ready to go served.
