This, Vegan Lime Cantaloupe Granita, is the perfect light dessert for summer or whenever you want to feel like it is summer again. It is very easy to make and the subtle sweet taste of cantaloupe and the slight tart taste of lime are a perfect combination for this granita. I wasn’t prepared to like this as much as I did and I know you will too!
