Watermelon Granita

From the Comfort of Cooking


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 pounds seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 5 cups)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

Make a simple syrup by heating sugar and water over high heat, stirring until all the sugar has dissolved. Let cool. Place the watermelon and lime juice in a heavy-duty blender and process until smooth. Add simple syrup to the puree and pulse until combined.

Pour liquid into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Freeze, stirring and scraping with a fork every hour, until all of the liquid has frozen. This should take about 4 hours.
