Watermelon & Tea Granita Recipe

Watermelon and Tea Granita - Serves 8

1/4 vanilla bean
1 bag Arbonne Detox Tea
2/3 cup boiling water
1 Tbsp agave nectar
3 cups puréed watermelon (from about 4 cups diced, seeded watermelon)
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Kosher salt

1. Split the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds. Put the vanilla seeds and tea in a small bowl (save the pod for another use). Add the boiling water and steep for 10 minutes. Add the nectar and stir gently to dissolve.
 2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon purée, lemon juice, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Strain the tea mixture into the watermelon mixture and stir to combine. Pour into a 9x9" metal baking pan, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze. 
3. After 1 hour, stir and scrape the mixture with a fork, repeating every 30 to 40 minutes, until the mixture has an icy shard-like consistency (about 3-1/2 hours total). 
4. To serve, scrape the granita into chilled bowls.
