Make it Monday [Watermelon Granita]

I'm back! I took an unplanned week off from the blog... I got wrapped up in making a cake for the Orange County Fair [I'll post about it later this week] and once that was done I jumped right into making party decor for the twins 2nd birthday! Can you believe they'll be 2 on Saturday? Crazy.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled posts..

Its summer and its HOT. Like our family I'm sure you'll be having or attending a few BBQs over the next couple months. A BBQ staple is watermelon, light and refreshing.. the perfect compliment to whatever is on the grill. Which leads me to this recipe....

We never eat an entire watermelon, always leaving us with about 1/2 left over. Then it dawned on me... Make a watermelon granita!

So easy to make and so darn tasty.

Here's how to make it:


Seedless Watermelon [leftover or a whole one]
1/4-3/4 Cup of sugar*
1-3 Tbsp Lime/Lemon Juice*

[*I used 1/4 cup sugar & 1tbsp lime juice for 1/2 of a medium sized watermelon, add more sugar and juice for larger watermelons]

1. Remove rind from the watermelon and place in blender with sugar and lime or lemon juice. Blend until its a smooth mixture.

2. Pour into 9x13 baking dish and place in freezer.

3. After 2-3 hours run a spoon through the mixture breaking it up so it doesn't freeze in one piece.

4. Repeat step above about 3 times or until mixture is the texture of a slushy.

5. Put in a bowl or a cup and devour.
