Watermelon Granita, a simple and refreshing dessert with just 3 ingredients!


  • 5 cups Watermelon, Seedless, cubed
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/4 cup Sugar


  1. In the bowl of a food processor or blender, add the 5 cups of watermelon and blend on high until smooth.
  2. Zest the lime and add 1/2 tsp lime zest to the watermelon. Then, juice the entire lime (you should have about 2-3 tbsp) and add all the juice to the food processor.
  3. Add the sugar and blend the mixture again on high until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into a 9 x 13 pan and carefully place into the freezer. (Make sure you have a flat space in your freezer for the pan to sit on, otherwise you will have granita stuck to your freezer!)
  5. Freeze for 2 hours and then remove from freezer. Using a fork, scrape the mixture, creating little crystals. Pop your pan back into the freezer for another hour.
  6. Remove from the freezer and give the granita another rake with a fork to break up the entire mixture. Serve in a pretty glass or bowls, enjoy the slushy, refreshing crunch of watermelon granita!
