Watermelon Granita Recipe with step by step pictures. Cooling and refreshing watermelon granita made with watermelon, lemon made into granita.
Watermelon Granita Recipe
Oh man it is so hot outside. I definitely want something which makes me cool from inside. And it has to be my watermelons. And I planned to make some granite out of it. This is the first time I ever tried granita, and I am in love with it from that time onwards. You could make it with any fruit you like. You can make it with orange, tomatoes, strawberries and anything. Combining tomatoes and watermelon will make a good tasty granita.
About Watermelon Granita Recipe
I made it couple of weeks back and my mother absolutely loved it. In fact she finished more than half of the container. I think it is a healthy alternative for ice cream in summer. Even though it is not creamy, but it makes you cool and you can have it anytime you want with no worries. Because you know that it is healthy for you.
The cool thing in this granita is you could flavour it with whatever you like. You could add some ginger juice, I mean ginger and watermelon goes so well together. I came to know about this from my watermelon cooler recipe. You could add mint leaves in this granite and go with whatever floats your boat.
I hope you will try it and make some watermelon cooler and watermelon fizz for this summer and enjoy it.
How to Make Watermelon Granita
Make Watermelon Juice
Cut watermelon in half. Cut in quarters and cut the flesh by running a knife underneath the skin.Chop them into small cubes.
Take sugar and lemon juice in a blender and blend it to a puree. Add the watermelon cubes and blend it so that it becomes a liquid.
Freezing Watermelon Juice
Pour this into a wide freezer container and freeze it for 5-6 hours. I left it there over night.
Now take a spoon or fork and scrape the granite so that it gets so what loose. Put the lid back and put it in the freezer again and leave for 2 hours. Now take it out. It will be hard now. Use a spoon or fork and scrape it starting from an end. Scrape all over the container.
Now put it in the freezer till serving. You can take some granita in a bowl and decorate it as per you wish.

Fruit granita is the perfect way to cool off! And by the looks of that fresh watermelon, your granita has some awesome flavor. It is about 70 degrees here so I kind of am at a middle ground on the weather. However, weather will have no influence because I want this-yum!
Looks yummy. Love the colours

Hey aarty i've tried this at home and was very yummy and refreshing🍧🍧🍧.But 200 gms of sugar is a lot for watermelon...it was toooo sweet....
@Aishwarya Karthikeyanu can reduce as per the sweetness of watermelon
