It’s definitely a HOT summer! Here’s a little remedy. Try this granita and enjoy the hot weather.

This icy treat makes the most of rich ripe watermelon. Melons can vary in flavor quite a bit, so taste the mixture before freezing and add more honey or lime if desired.


  • 8 cups seedless watermelon chunks, divided
  • 2 tablespoons of Organic Acacia Honey Rigoni di Asiago
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint or basil (optional)


  1. Place half of watermelon in a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Pour into a 9×13-inch glass baking dish.
  3. Add remaining watermelon to the processor along with Rigoni di Asiago organic Acacia honey and lime juice and process until smooth.
  4. Pour into the baking dish, stir until combined, and place uncovered in the freezer.
  5. Freeze until ice begins to form around edges of pan, about 30 minutes.
  6. Rake with a fork to break up large ice clumps; return to freezer; continue stirring about every 30 minutes until all liquid is crystalized, about 3 hours total.
  7. Using a large fork, flake granita into bowls or into an airtight container to freeze up to 1 week. Serve garnished with mint or basil, if desired.
