It’s been so hot lately, I haven’t been baking much (as you probably have noticed), my family still loves to have a treat though. Since cupcakes weren’t in order for the day, and our Summer Lime Pie was gone, I decided to give this Watermelon Granita a try.
Even though the name sounds really fancy, it is actually just fruit juice and simple syrup (sugar and water). I love having fresh fruit, but it seems like when I buy a Watermelon much of it goes to waste. They are usually pretty big, even for our family. I’m not a Watermelon lover, I know…the shame of it…but Doug and the boys all love it. So this cool dessert was a perfect way to use some of the watermelon so it didn’t go to waste.
We had enough juice left to make some Homemade Popsicles too. Nick and his girlfriend bought these plastic molds at Michael’s for only $1.
The boys have also been making Pink Lemonade Pops. Those were especially yummy!
So…which would you like to try, the Watermelon Granita or the Homemade Popsicles?
