Watermelon Granita

Watermelon Granita-One Ingredient Recipe

Watermelon Granita recipe-

Granita is a frozen dessert usually made with 2 or 3 ingredients. I have been working on making a healthy version of fruit granita and clicking it successfully. Yeah…Clicking was tougher than figuring out a healthy watermelon granita recipe. Granita may make you think something great or tough. The name is just a sophistication. It is just like the jalfrezi which made me super mad to even to give a try. Granita is nothing but freezing any fruit juice or combination of juices with sweetener, raking/scraping, and serving…No gulping 🙂 I tried 3 to 4 variants and none at home has so far had a chance to even taste. Yep. I gulped the moment I clicked. Something like the Indian Kola sticks which is one of the famous street foods. Without taking much of your time let me share the watermelon granita recipe.
