Standard 1 cup measures 240 ml


  • 4 cup Seedless WaterMelon chunks
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice


  • Chop the watermelon into small chunks, preferably remove the seeds. In a blender add in the Lemon juice and sugar and blend it well.
  • In the same blender now add in the Watermelon chunks and pulse into a fine puree. Remove the puree from the blender and pour it into a freezer-safe container.
  • Freeze it for about 3 hours. Remove it after 3 hours and see, it would have set partially. Scrap it with the help of a spoon and then continue freezing.
  • After the next 3 hours repeat the same process. Freeze it for another 3 hours it would have set perfectly and then the Granita consistency would have reached. If it is not set properly you can repeat the same process. Scrape it carefully with a fork. Cooling Water Melon granita is now ready to be served.


  • Serve the granite immediately as it tends to cool down after taking out from the freezer.
  • Don’t skip the Lemon juice as it gives a great flavor to the Watermelon Granita
  • The perfect consistency is that it should look like icy crystals.
  • Always use a fork to break the granita, as with a spoon we might not get the perfect grains.
