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.

Junk Free Snack Box Recipes for kids(School/Day care)

Kids Snack Box Recipes:



The greatest puzzles to which we never get the right answer would be “What to pack for kids lunch box/snack box?”.We will have a huge decision-making process involved wherein we need to consider kid’s likes/ dislikes, availability of ingredients, ease of self-feeding at school, nutritional demands and a lot more. After thinking of so many of these we need to work on presenting them to kids well and ensuring that they have it with no mess at school/daycare and completely finish them.



My little boy has the habit of asking me daily for the menu details before taking his school bag. He would be equally interested the previous day to give his own menu too. I have compiled a set of simple snack options which can be a mid-morning/ evening snack for kids above 1.5 years. All of these are totally junk free and 100% healthy Kids Snack Box Recipes(white ingredients free). I hope you would find them useful. Kindly bookmark this page as this section would be regularly updated.

GROUNDNUT CASHEW BALLS

Nuts Laddu/Groundnuts Laddu:

Everyone in the family is so fond of groundnuts.We love it as laddu/candy/steamed/roasted/gravy/stir fry/salad. I used to make this laddu when little one was less than two years when I was scared if he would bite groundnut candy(our own kadalai mittai) and chew well. Groundnut is an excellent source of energy,protein and selenium. When we combine groundnut and jaggery it becomes a power house of iron too. I always prefer the traditional candies like groundnut candy/laddu/fried gram ladoo/sesame laddu to any other store bought cookies or candies or biscuits. You can watch a video of Dr.Sivaraman here stating the importance of our own traditional foods and highlighting the nutritional value of groundnuts. Continue reading “GROUNDNUT CASHEW BALLS”
