This granita is a refreshing, low-calorie treat on a hot summer's day. For an extra layer of flavor, you can also serve this sip in a margarita glass with a salted rim.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a blender, combine watermelon, lime zest and juice, tequila and agave and blend until smooth, adding watermelon in batches if necessary.

  • Pour mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a 9-by-13-inch freezer-safe dish. Press with a spoon to extract as much juice as possible. Discard pulp.

  • Freeze for 2 hours. Using a fork, scrape up and incorporate ice crystals. Freeze again, scraping up ice crystals every 30 minutes with a fork, until frozen, about 2 hours more. Spoon into 6 bowls, garnish each with a lime wedge, if desired, and serve.
