Cool off with this watermelon granita! Originally from Sicily, this icy treat resembles a sophisticated and healthy version of a snow cone. Instead of being made with artificial sugary syrups, it’s made with fresh fruit, a little sugar, and water. Watermelons are a great base because they don’t require extra water or much sugar. Make watermelon granita ahead of time and serve as a light dessert for a summer dinner party — or enjoy immediately as a refreshing and hydrating snack.
Prep Time: 4 to 6 hours (active time: about 30 minutes)
