A frozen watermelon granita is a real summer treat. It’s a refreshing and crunchy frozen dessert with just three simple ingredients.
- 1 pound Watermelon
- 1 whole Lemon, Zest And Juice
- 3 tablespoons Sugar
Start by roughly chopping the fresh watermelon into large chunks. Puree the watermelon, lemon zest, lemon juice and sugar in a food processor.
Transfer the watermelon puree mixture to a shallow 9×9 baking dish. I use a glass pan, but you can also use a metal pan.
Freeze for 2 hours. Remove from the freezer and use a regular fork to scrape the frozen watermelon mixture into the pan to form ice crystals. Freeze for an additional 3 hours.
