Healthy Summer Treats With Berries: Strawberry Melon Granita

in Jun 3, 2015

My #instaweanteam dish for the week is strawberry and melon granita!

Granita is Italian shaved ice. Usually granita has loads of sugar but I made a baby friendly sugar free version using watermelon juice.

1 pint strawberries, stems removed
2/3 cup watermelon juice

Note: You can make your own watermelon juice by putting fresh watermelon into a juicer. If you don’t have a juicer use a blender and strain it through a cheesecloth or mesh strainer.

1. Blend strawberries into a liquid puree.
2. Add watermelon juice and pour into a freezer safe container.
3. Put into the freezer and every half an hour gently stir, working from outside inwards, breaking up large chunks.
4. Repeat this until the mix is frozen into tiny shaved ice granules.

 You can try different fruits as well. A very popular one is lemon!
