Watermelon green apple Granita

Summer is here and its already beating the hell out of us here in Chennai!This is what you should have to cool yourselves down!A simple granita made out of the juiciest watermelons!

Granitas are just frozen fruitjuice/slush you can add any seasonal juicy fruits like melons or peaches.I had been wanting to try this for a while but i thought it was a lot of work.But i was wrong.It took me all of 10 minutes to just stash it in the refrigerator and you don't have to bother for the next two hours.After 2 hours you need to fork the mixture around the edges of the container you are freezing especially so you don't end up with one whole large popsicle.

I did the forking bit for about 4 5 times and the final product was super good.I started the process in the evening at about 3 and we enjoyed loved cool granitas for dessert after dinner!

Preparation time : 10 mins + 5-6 hours freezing time

You need 
Watermelons 1 large wedge
Green apple 1 just half is enough
Sugar 2 tsps or more as per your taste
Lemon juice 1 tsp

  • Grind all the above in a blender and sieve it incase your watermelon is not seedless.
  • Pour this into a container you can freeze, cover and freeze for about 6 hours with contant forking every 2 hours or whenever you remember.

All gone!Serve cold in any glass of your choice and enjoy the cold cold granitas and chill yourselves this summer!
