Glowing Watermelon-Citrus Granita

Granitas. Have you heard of this gorgeous dish? If not, then sister... you're about to get your socks ROCKED! Granitas (originally from Italy) are traditionally known for their signature combo of "sugar, water and various flavoring" (source).

If I could explain the texture to you, it's a cross between a summer slushy and sorbet and will leave your tastebuds OH-SO satisfied.

Speaking of satisfied... the Blossoming Mommy and Baby kitchen was BUSY this week and we definitely perfected this beauty for you. So fresh. So crisp. So slushy. So healthy. You're going to LOVE it. Enjoy this treat as an afternoon snack or post dinner dessert and be sure to snap a picture of your GORGEOUS blend and share it with the Blossoming Mommy and Baby community using @blossomingmommyandbaby and #blossomingmommyandbaby!
