It’s summer time, I like sweet stuff, lets make some kinda of frozen treat.
I know all the old tricks:
- Place a Popsicle stick in a single size serving of yogurt, freeze
- Make a smoothie and freeze in a Popsicle shaped trays
- Mix fresh fruit with yogurt, freeze for 20 minutes and enjoy
There are more, but why go on and on and on. Today we are trying something new. Something I’ve never tried before. I’m still on my vegan, raw, trip, after yesterdays scrumptious peanut butter cups. Today we are making Watermelon Granita, it only requires 3 ingredients and it’s a great substitute for high calorie, high fat ice cream.
Before I can dive into this recipe lets figure out what Granita actually is, unless you already know, because I did not.
Grainta is a course Italian style flavored ice, or drink made with crush ice
This makes sense, no adding dairy or needs of ice cream machines, we are basically making fruit sweetened frozen ice
4 cups (1-3/4 pounds) cubed watermelon
1 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs fresh lime juice
Small wedge of watermelon for garnish
Can be made up to 3 days ahead
That’s all today folks!
