Last summer when my son and I were constantly experimenting with granitas, ice creams, and fruit smoothies I came up with this fun adult version. It is very light and not overly sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine melon, strawberries, and lime juice in a blender. Blend until smooth and strain. Pour into a medium sauce pot with sugar. Heat until the sugar dissolves, no need to boil.
  2. Remove from heat and add sparkling wine.
  3. Pour into an 11x7 inch baking dish, cover and freeze for about 1 hour. Remove from freezer and scrape with a fork every 30-45 minutes. Repeat this process for about 4 hours, or until granita is light and fluffy.
  4. Serve in a pretty glass of your choice with a sprig of mint.
  5. Enjoy.
