It's officially summertime! Mr. T and I have been snacking on a watermelon for a couple of days. I love it. With it being summer in the south we are seeing temperatures that are pushing 100* on a regular basis. It's the perfect excuse to eat something cold.
I like granitas. They are easy to make and don't require an ice cream maker. This one can even be made with a sugar substitute for those watching their sugar intake.
4 cups seedless watermelon chunks
1/2 cup sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Pour into a shallow, wide pan and freeze for 1 hour. Rake mixture with fork and freeze for another hour.
Rake and freeze for one more hour. Rake and serve in cups.
