It's Friday ( yey !! )
This week my blogger inspired came from Michelle from That's so Michelle
One day I came home from work and throw everything I carry onto my bed. Feeling tired and hungry
I walk towards the fridge.
Then I saw this half watermelon, and instantly something click in my head. I've been reading Michelles blog and I remember her super easy recipes with watermelon.
"mum are you gonna use this watermelon??!!", I shouted still glaring at the juicy watermelon
"you can have them S, what are you going to do with it?"
"watermelon granita", I whisper
|via That's so Michelle|
4 cups (1 3/4 pounds) cubed seedless watermelon (from a 4-lb. melon)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
What to do:
Purée all ingredients in a blender (I used a food processor) until smooth. Pour into a 9x9x2" metal baking pan. Freeze mixture for 1 hour. Stir, mashing any frozen parts with the back of a fork. Cover and freeze mixture until firm, might as well leave it over night.
Using a fork, scrape granita vigorously to form icy flakes. Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover tightly with foil and keep frozen. Give it a quick scrape before serving.
I addapt this recipes from Michelle but instead of using fresh lime juice I use sour orange slices since at that moment I don't have any lime and it's too late to buy one.
I didn't measure at all I just use my hungry instinct
It's super easy
basically like making a watermelon juice and freeze it.
