Cantaloupe Raspberry Granita


  • 1/3 cup raw sugar or sweetner of your choice
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 4 cups cantaloupe
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • Zest from one lime


  • Puree melon and berries in blender until completely liquid.
  • Combine sugar and water in small pot on stove. Heat until sugar dissolved completely in water.
  • Add sugar water to melon berry puree and blend.
  • Pour mixture into 13 x 9 glass baking dish. Place on flat surface in freezer.
  • Every 30 minutes, take fork and scrape the bottom of the dish for approximately 3 hours. 3 hours sounds like a long time but it is easy to do. Let the kids help with this step! This prevents large ice crystals from forming.
  • When the granita is icy but not frozen hard, take out and scoop into bowls.
  • Enjoy immediately!
