Summer is heading our way and have we got the perfect frozen treat for you! This Watermelon Granita!
This is sweet and has the most delicate texture as it hits your tongue! Trust me, it will become a favourite!
Freeze a long red chilli for a few hours and grate a small amount over the top of the granita for a little heat kick.
Blitz the watermelon in a food processor or blender. Heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until dissolved, set aside to cool.
Combine all ingredients in a large metal pan and freeze for 4 to 5 hours.
Scrape the top with a fork and place the shavings in a glass to serve.
Garnish with small fresh mint leaves
Recipe Hints and Tips:
- Watermelon Granita is best made on the day you are serving it.
- If you don't have time to use the fork, you can place the mixture in a food processor or blender and make it into a slushie!
- Add a splash of vodka for an adults only version!
