If my children had a choice, they would probably live off of watermelon if they could. And though we've yet to test this, I think each of my sons could eat a whole large watermelon in one sitting. I would not be surprised.
Well, thank goodness there's an endless supply of the fruit in the summer. I'm trying to find more creative ways to prepare and serve it, and when I saw a watermelon granita recipe in the latest issue of Whole Living, I knew I hit the jackpot. And can I tell you how much my sons loved it?
The real beauty of this delightful treat is how incredibly simple it is to make. My older son loved lending a hand in making this, almost as much as he loved eating it. Almost.
If you're having a barbeque or get-together this coming holiday weekend, I couldn't recommend an easier or more refreshing dessert to serve your guests. Garnish with mint or a slice of lime. Top with raspberries or blueberries.
And then grab a spoon and dig in. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
