Watermelon Granita

recipe & instructions from

1/2 seedless watermelon
1/2 cup white sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Cut up watermelon flesh into chunks and then puree in a blender. If your watermelon isn't seedless, make sure to remove the seeds first before putting in the blender or you'll get mashed up seeds which may taste bitter.

Combine the watermelon juice with the sugar and lemon and mix well.

**I poured mine into my ice cream maker and let it run until it was done-I then put it into a tray and put it into the freezer to set**

Pour it all into a shallow wide pan and freeze for 1 hour. When the mixture is frozen, remove from the freezer and rake with a fork all the way through. Return to the freezer for another hour and then rake again. Return to the freezer for one more hour. Rake again with fork then serve. Add a sprig of mint to up the coolness factor!

I made something like this for Hubs. We called it a Watermelon Slushie and he added some vodka.

I have to go check out your Foodie Friday..
