Melon Mint Granita

When temperatures reach 100 F here in Cali, I only want to eat COLD things.  Last summer I made some Granitas - Maui Mango Ginger and Nectarine Mint .  This year I am trying Honeydew Melon with fresh mint.  
Melon Mint Granita

1/4 of a ripe Honeydew Melon, pealed and cut into chunks
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
Juice of one fresh lemon
2 tsp. mint 
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree.  Pour into a 8" glass pan.  Freeze for at least 2 1/2 hours, scraping it with a fork every hour.  Mixture should be frozen, but fluffy. 
What do you like to eat when it's too hot to cook?
