This Watermelon Granita is delicious and so refreshing. It’s such a tasty treat for those hot summer days! This recipe uses no refined sugars and will surely be a summer poolside favorite this year.
🍉 4 cups cubed watermelon
🍉 1 1/2 cups orange juice, freshly squeezed or not from concentrate
🍉 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
🍉 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Cut the watermelon into chunks, measure 4 cups, and place them in a blender. Also, add the orange juice, lime juice, and maple syrup.
Blend until the mixture is smooth.
Pour it into a glass freezer-safe container ( I used an 8-cup container that is freezer safe, but you may also use a 9x13 glass container). Cover it with its lid and place it in the freezer for 3 hours.
Follow the process below:
After 3 hours, remove the lid and scrape it with a fork (focusing on the corners). It should be of a slushy consistency. Put the lid back on and back in the freezer for an additional hour.
Remove from the freezer and scrape it with a fork, making sure to mash any large chunks and focus on scraping the corners. Place it back in the freezer for another hour.
Remove from the freezer and scrape it with a fork, making sure to mash any large chunks, and don’t forget the corners again. Place it back in the freezer for another hour.
Scrape with a fork, serve, and enjoy!
Continue this process until it’s at the consistency you prefer-(either a slushy like consistency or that of shaved ice).
Note: if it sits in the freezer overnight or longer, remove it from the freezer and allow it to sit at room temperature for a few minutes or until you can scrape it with a fork.
