So, with temperatures nearing the 90s in West Palm and feeling like it’s well over, I asked myself… “what could I possibly share to turn these dehydrated beings into happy & productive south Floridians once again?”. Like a snake, the idea bit me… The watermelon granita over at What Katie Ate! Feel free to head over to her beautiful blog to express gratitude.
The recipe calls for:
- 1 lg fresh, seedless watermelon, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp dried chili flakes
Place the watermelon, lime juice, salt and chili flakes in a processor until pulpy. Pass through a sieve. Pour the sieved liquid into a wide metal baking tray or freezer proof dish and freeze for approximately 2-3 hours or until ready to serve.
When ready, use a fork to scrape the granita into shards and serve in dessert glasses.
