Cantaloupe Granita

l saw this recipe last summer in food network channel. Being a big fan of Ice Gola (Snow Cone), I liked Granita as well, as the textures looked similar. Minimal ingredients needed, and easy to prepare; best part is no cooking required!


Cantaloupe Granita

Preparation Time : 10 min | Freezing Time : 9 hours | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Dessert


Ripe Cantaloupe – 2 cups, peeled, deseeded and cut into chunks

Lemon Juice – 2 tsp

Sugar – 4 tbsp


  • In a blender, add cantaloupe, sugar and lime juice and blend into a puree


  • Put in a wide bowl and freeze. I did not cover it, and it came out good! After 3 to 4 hours, scrap it with a fork and freeze again. Leave it for 6 hours in the freezer


  • After the puree is completely frozen, take it out, scrap it with a fork. Granita is ready


My Notes:

  • You can try granita with any fruit puree
  • Serve it immediately to avoid the granita becoming cantaloupe juice 🙂
  • You can experiment by sprinkling fresh chopped herbs like mint, basil etc
