I think I’m in love! This new kid on the block is the latest addition to my repertoire and I can’t get enough of it! I am absolutely certain that you will love it too!

Granita sits midway between an all-out slushie and an ice pop and it looks as beautiful as it tastes. The combo of zingy, fresh lime, sweet watermelon and the slight tartness of pomegranate syrup is a match made in heaven.

I embellish each of my chalices with fresh mint, a wedge of watermelon and an extra twist of fresh lime.

To make this summer garden party winner, you will need:
Half a watermelon (cubed and de-seeded)
The juice of 3 limes
3 tbsp pomegranate syrup
3 tbsp coconut nectar
Fresh mint garnish

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor
2. Purée until smooth
3. Pour in to wide, shallow tray and freeze
4. Rake mixture with a fork and pop back in freezer for 1 hr
5. Repeat and serve!
6. Sip & enjoy!
