Recipe: Watermelon Basil Granita
Get the most nutrition out of your granita by using natural fruits.
You can make granita with juice, fruit puree, coffee or even liquor, but fresh fruit — and the nutrients that come with it — gets our vote. Here, watermelon provides vitamin C and a phytonutrient with powerful antioxidant properties called lycopene.
