EatingWell Wednesday - Melon & Apple Granita

Last week proved to be a scorcher here with 103F last Tuesday so I went to work making my first granita. What is a Granita you ask? It is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavorings however, the recipe I am making does not include added sugar.



The recipe for this Melon & Apple Granita used Apple Juice as a sweetener and it is exactly what we needed. Yes, making a granita requires a bit more effort that scooping out some sorbet but with the assistance of a timer, I had no issues staying on track.

granita... and anything cold sounds good to me. actually, we're no where near 103 right now, so i shouldn't complain, but it's been rough lately.
