Fruit Granita (C4)

Recipe Author: Lisa B.
(As posted to 17 Day Diet Support Group)

This could work as a fun fruit portion, as well.

Liquefy in a blender:
4 cups of melon cubes
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/4 c of lime juice.

Pour into a large, shallow pan and then lay flat in your freezer.

Flake with a fork every 40 minutes until frozen completely.

Serve with mint leaves and berries for garnish.

It's only fruit, so 1 cupful (not packed, keep it airy) should count as 1 portion.

17 Day Diet Gal's notes:
The reason this is C4 is because of the apple and lime juices.  Because there is very little per portion of each, this could reasonably be used as a C3 dessert (the melons make it C3).
