The Mixed Stew is going on hiatus from Aug 29 thru September 6. We hope everyone enjoys a week of veggie repeats until then and Happy Labor Day. The Mixed Stew will be back on September 6 with even more yummy posts.

A twist on a summer favorite by adding green tea

These watermelon granitas can be a delightful end to any summer meal. Serve these instead of fat-laden ice cream for a frozen treat that’s refreshing and light. The addition of green tea infused with honey also makes it more delish. Here is our recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 large bowl
1 hand blender
1 metal fork
1 shallow pan
4 cups, iced green tea (add 3 tablespoons honey while brewing tea)
4 cups, ripe watermelon
½ cup sugar (or Splenda)

Preparation and Directions:

Combine green tea, watermelon, sugar (or Splenda) in large bowl. Pulse mixture with hand blender until pureed. Next, pour smooth mixture into pan. Freeze for 1 hour. Rake mixture with fork and freeze for another hour. Finally, rake one last time and serve in cups.
