Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Bottled simple syrup makes this Watermelon Mint Granita quick and easy, removing the step of making your own simple syrup and cooling it. Look for simple syrup in the wine and beer aisle of your local grocery store.
  • tip 2
    Granita is the Italian term for an “ice” or frozen dessert made with fruit or fruit juice. The texture will be grainier than a sorbet and is very similar to a slush.
  • tip 3
    To easily and safely clean your blender after making your Watermelon Mint Granita, fill dirty container halfway with water and pulse several times to clean off blades before washing.
