This watermelon granita recipe is light and healthy. It tastes great on its own and you can also serve it with creamy white chocolate pots de crème.
Servings 4 cups
- 100 grams granulated sugar ½ cup
- 125 mL water ½ cup
- 4 cups cubes of watermelon
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 4 tbsp tequila I like Cazadores
In a small saucepan, heat the sugar with the water until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool.
In a blender (I used this this Cuisinart food processor I bought on Amazon), blend together the syrup with the watermelon, lime juice, and tequila. Strain the mixture and then pour into a 9x13 deep dish that can go in the freezer (like this one on Amazon).
Freeze the juice mixture for 2 hours, then stir/scrape with a fork. Freeze for another hour, stir/scrape with a fork. Repeat until you have a granular watermelon granita.
Store in the freezer, covered, until you are ready to serve. Serve the watermelon granita as is or over the white chocolate pots de crème (see recipe below).
