A cool refreshing dessert that's super easy to make. All you need are fresh cucumbers, limes, water and sugar!

1/2

1/2
cup water
2
cucumbers
2
limes, freshly squeezed

Directions

  • 1 Line shallow dish with parchment paper. In 2-quart saucepan, beat sugar and water with whisk until blended. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until mixture becomes a thin syrup. Cool.
  • 2 Remove most of peel from cucumbers. With spoon, scoop out seeds. Chop cucumber into cubes.

  • 4 Rake fork through mixture. Serve immediately, or return granita to freezer until ready to serve.
Tips  

If you have an industrial-sized blender, no cooking and peeling needed! Just toss all of the ingredients into your blender, blend it until the sugar is dissolved, then pour it into a parchment-lined dish and freeze! So easy!

To crank up the lime flavor in this recipe, add the grated peel of the two limes, as well as the juice.
