Granita is semi frozen candy in ice form dessert which prepare by sugar, lemon juice, and some flavors. For this recipe, I use watermelon juice as a flavor. Now a days it’s so hot here…. for this, granita or ice candy is perfect treat for summer. To make this, you have to do just two simple step; first prepare fruity flavors and freeze it and secondly scrap the mixture and again freeze it. This time I prefer to use seasonal fruit watermelon. The color is really shiny and glossy like crystals.
When we were in school, after the School bell candywala’s comes with lots of colorful ice candies ... Me and my friends both always eat those pipe-candy. I always brought in the red and Coco Cola flavor, both were my favorite.
