Watermelon Granita: This Italian Flavored Ice Is Perfect for Summer!

Granita is an Italian semi-frozen flavored ice that originated in Sicily. The types of granita are endless. If you've never made granita, this watermelon granita recipe is the perfect place to start. 

You'll need:

  • 8 cups watermelon chunks, seeds removed
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Here's how to make it:

  1. Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. You'll have to do this in at least two batches.
  2. Pour mixture into a 13x9-inch baking pan. Freeze for at least 2 hours, then lightly scrape the top to remove the frozen layer. Leave it in the pan and freeze another 2 hours. Continue scraping until the whole pan has been shaved. 

Serve in a glass and garnish with a piece of watermelon or slice of lime.
