Healthy Watermelon Sweet Treat
First recipe, first blog post, first YouTube video...
The recipe that started it all is finally live on the blog to you all, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it again! This sweet treat is unbelievably simple to make, and it only involves two ingredients- watermelon and lime.
My second summer in Arizona, I was looking for ways to beat the heat with cold treats. I stumbled across recipes for granitas. These semi-frozen desserts originated in Italy and are typically comprised of a simple syrup (sugar and water) with flavorings, like fresh fruit and fruit juices. I was inspired and decided to try to create a similar sweet, but without the syrup. This watermelon and lime combo is the result of that experimentation. It’s flaky, decadent and refreshing on a hot summer day. I hope you enjoy this granita-inspired treat!
If you decide to make this recipe, I’d love to see it! Share on social media and tag Nutrition Elevated.
