Watermelon Lime Granita

Watermelon Lime Granita, a refreshing and sugar free recipe for summerNothing says summer like a sweet and juicy watermelon… and limes too. They are the perfect accessory for any drink, cocktail or sorbet. This refreshing recipe is sugar and guilt free, it’s made with ice and fresh fruit. I made this with my new ice cream maker (thank you Korbesmeyer family) but you don’t need one to get the same results.

It was my intention to make a sorbet, but the texture of this dessert was more crystalized so I decided to properly call it Granita based on the consistency. Although granita is supposed to be sugar and water based with flavoring, I decided that watermelon has enough natural sugar and doesn’t need any added!
