This cantaloupe granita is a refreshing addition to our summer. It will see us through any coming heat waves.

It is lightly sweet and has a wonderful cantaloupe flavor that is so refreshing. Our cantaloupes are perfectly ripe now at the grocery stores. Sometimes you can get a cantaloupe with no flavor. So make sure to pick up one that is just ripe.

I topped it with some sweetened pistachios for a nice crunch. Cantaloupe and pistachio flavorings are the perfect pairing. They are both subtle yet very distinct.
