Lychee + Watermelon Granita

By author photo Jenny Craig Team


Serves 1.

1½ cups watermelon, cut into chunks
3 lychees (tinned is ok)
Juice and zest from ½ lime



  1. Place the watermelon, lychees and lime juice in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the fruit into a metal pan and freeze for 30 minutes.
  3. After 30 minutes gently scrape the mixture with a fork to move the liquid around.
  4. Return the pan back into the freezer and repeat this process every 30 minutes to form largish ice crystals (this should take approximately 3-4 hours in total).
  5. The granita will be ready when the mixture is completely frozen but has large flaky ice crystals.
  6. Serve in your favourite glass and garnish with a wedge of fresh lime & zest.
