Watermelon Granita

Watermelon Granita-One Ingredient Recipe

Watermelon Granita-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.

Kesar Badam Mix for toddlers & kids:

The huge challenge/worry/doubt of all moms is about kid refusing cows milk .I have received a lot of queries about how can a parent can make his/her kid drink milk without any battles.My answer would prefer plain milk or instant dry fruits milk or Prefer no milk at all.Yeah..I prefer no milk at all if the kid has enough milk products on daily basis or takes other sources of calcium.I don’t force my kid to take milk.In fact, milk is only used rarely in cooking or for direct consumption at home.I stopped it way back in 2012.And none of us take coffee/tea too. But we consume all milk products like butter,ghee, cheese, paneer,curd regularly.This kesar almond mix is one of the oldest preparations at home.I made this for little one as I kept forgetting soaking almonds every night for daily consumption.I have finally come with a post on details to avoid a gooey mix when prepared at home.And you know what this is sugarless.So it is safe to use even for 6 months baby.The below procedure might seem complex but I can ensure a 100% non sticky powder which will just mix with warm milk.This will stay good even for a year if you freeze it.
