The Power of Red, Granata Recipe Gives Reason to Crack a Watermelon


It's mouth-watering and refreshing, beautiful, delicious and super simple to make! Plan accordingly the granata has to stay in the freezer for several hours before serving.

½ cup water
⅓ cup sugar
5 cups watermelon

Coconut Ice cream
Lime zest

1.    In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar.
2.    Place watermelon in a food processor and add the sugar water and process until nearly smooth.
3.    Transfer the mixture to a container with a tight fitting lid. Place it in the in the freezer for several hours or until slight firm, with a bit of a slush factor. It helps to periodically move the mixture around using a fork as it tends to freeze unevenly.
4.    Evenly divide watermelon granata evenly among 6 serving bowls and top with coconut ice cream and shaved lime zest if desired. Serve immediately.
