The best summer desserts are the ones that keep you cool. Amirite? As much as I’m LOVING these triple-digit days, it sure is nice to cool off with a refreshing treat. Watermelon Granita is the perfect way to do that! It’s light, refreshing, and SO yummy.
This recipe makes a nice sized pan full of granita to serve a crowd. So perfect for a summer party! Keep it in the freezer and pull it out till you’re ready to serve.
Store any leftovers in a tupperware container or another container with a lid that can go in the freezer. You’re going to love this refreshing treat!
