We are making watermelon granita! It has been so hot these past couple of days and when it is too hot to turn on my oven to bake, I like to make granita. Super easy and really tasty.

1 1/2 – 2 lbs seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into 2 – 3 ” chunks.
1/4 cup simple syrup
2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
handful of fresh mint
Add watermelon, simple syrup, lime juice and mint to a blender. Blend until smooth.

Strain the watermelon juice into a 13″ x 9″ pan. Carefully place the pan into the freezer.

Every 30 minutes for the next 2 hours, remove the granita from the freezer and scrape with a fork until the granita is light and fluffy.

Serves 6 to 8.
