Strawberry Watermelon Granita Prep: 20 minutes active time, several hours inactive time. Special equipment: Food processor or blender. Serves: 6 INGREDIENTS
  • 1 bottle Village Juicery watermelon flesh and pink salt juice
  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, leafy tops removed
  • 10 mint leaves, plus more for garnish
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1-3 tbsp sweetener of your choice (e.g., raw honey or organic cane sugar)* (See note below)
  • Generous pinch of sea salt*
*Not available in kit. DIRECTIONS Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more sweetener, mint, red pepper flakes, or salt to your preference. Pour strawberry watermelon mixture into a freezer-safe 9 x 13’ pan. Freeze for 2-3 hours, or until the mixture is frozen around the edges. With a fork, scrape the ice from the edges towards the centre. Return mixture to the freezer. Repeat this process every 30-60 minutes until all of the granita mixture is formed of ice crystals. To serve: Scoop into chilled cups or bowls. Top with a fresh mint leaf, if you’d like, and eat immediately. Note: The amount of sweetener you use will depend on how sweet and ripe the strawberries are when you’re making the granita. Also, keep in mind when you freeze liquids they tend to taste less sweet once frozen. As such, opt for your liquid mixture to be a little sweeter than you think is necessary.
