One mini watermelon is all you need to make a delicious batch of this sweet granite. Icy flakes of refreshing granita are served in a hollowed out watermelon bowl and topped with fresh balls of melon to make a sweet, icy dessert that everyone will love.


  • 4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
