I love granita, in my opinion it is a guilt free icecream. Because it is cooling and gives the satisfication of eating a icecream but without the calorie. It is just fruit pulp freezed and scraped to form a sand like crystal which taste like heaven. I have already shared a watermelon granita and grape granita.
I just want to share different versions of granita here. I had two cantaloupe which hubby picked during our last supermarket visit, i made a cantaloupe lemon cooler and this. So here is my cantaloupe version. I made this yesterday and it turned out great. Loved it to core, give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Chilling Time : 6 hours or overnight
Serves : 4
Ripe Cantaloupe / Musk Melon - 1
Sugar - 3 tblspn or to taste
Lemon Juice - 1 tblspn
Cut open a cantaloupe and scoop the seeds. Now scoop the flesh and add it to a blender, add other ingredients and puree smoothly.
Transfer the puree to a freezer container and freeze for 3 to 4 hours or till frozen.
Now remove them and use a spoon or fork to scrape it out,
Freeze again till serving.
