Lychee & Watermelon Granita
- 2 cups of chopped watermelon
- 565 g can lychee
- 1 cup water
- A few mint leaves (optional)
- Pop a metal tray in the freezer
- Drain lychees and add to a blender along with the watermelon, water and mint if using. Blend until smooth. (Depending on your type of blender you may have to strain the mixture with a fine sieve to remove any pulp). Pour into metal tray and freeze until partially set, about 3 hours. After 3 hours break up the ice that has formed with a fork and repeat this step every 30 minutes or so, for the next couple of hours until the granita has formed ice crystals
You could use any fruit in this recipe and if you like it a little sweeter add some sugar syrup to the mix.
This looks SO good!! And great pics by the way!!! I don’t use lychee often in my recipes but you just reminded me how much I love it and how I NEED to incorporate it more!
Thanks very much Lisa. I love lychees as well. Fresh are fantastic but the frozen ones do quite nicely.
