If you love shaved ice then this quick and easy fruity Watermelon Granita will definitely be your jam. Simple to prepare and great for steamy summer days!
6 cups cubed seedless watermelon (flesh only, rinds removed)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar or agave
pinch of salt
Puree the watermelon, lime juice, sugar and salt in a blender until smooth.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a 13″x9″ shallow baking dish. Discard solids.
Freeze mixture for 30 minutes, then scrap with a fork.
Continue scraping every 30 minutes for 2 1/2 to 4 hours until the entire mixture is fluffy shaved ice.
Serve with a watermelon wedge as garnish.
