Watermelon Granita

It is summer again, and you know what that means!  Fresh, delicious fruits..nectarines, peaches and of course, watermelon!

Angela had forgotten about a watermelon she had picked up about a week ago, even though it was sitting in her fridge staring at her every time she opened those doors. Well, good thing she waited!  The overly ripe melon was perfect for a sweet and refreshing granita! Blended together with a little agave and lime juice, this makes the ultimate summertime dessert.
