Watermelon Granita


This weather calls for something cool today! I have been wanting to make ice cream but just didn't want to go through the whole process so I had leftover watermelon and decided to try something new. It was a easy experiment so..here you go.

Watermelon Granita
4c of seedless watermelon
1 sm can of sweet condensed milk
1 pkg of Jello Gelatin (watermelon flavor)

Puree your watermelon,( I strained mine because I didn't want ANY pulpy stuff and to catch any small seeds) then I put it back in blender and add condensed milk and dry Jello. Mix well in bleneder. Pour into a freezer safe dish and freeze overnight.
I used a ice cream scooper because it was soft enough but you can use a fork to get that "granita' texture.
It was cool and refreshing.
Let me know what you think.
