Strawberry Lychee summer drink
I have been MIA for the past week as I was away on a road trip. Had a great time, and took a complete break from checking other blogs and thinking about future posts.
Now I have a lot of catching up to do on the blogging front. I’m back with this post of a refreshing summer drink! Bringing this to Fiesta Friday #28, the virtual party over at Angie’s blog, hosted this week by Margot and Saucy. Also submitting this recipe to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck #6 hosted by the Unrefined Vegan.
I had heard about the lychee /lychi fruit but actually got to see one only after coming to the U.S. It is a tropical fruit grown originally in China and some parts of India. You would find his fruit in an Indian or International market. I got a bag of lychis recently at an international market, but was somewhat puzzled that I could not find out which ones are sweet. And disappointed that the kids did not like the texture of the fruit. Simple answer: blend into a drink! It is delicious, naturally sweet, so no sweetener is needed. I added strawberries for added color and flavor.
Find out more about this exotic fruit here.
This is how the fruit looks up close:

Peel and remove seeds from lychees. Hull strawberries. Blend.

We went on a road trip at the same time! I am definitely behind on reading blogs, and thinking about future posts. I absolutely love learning more about the lychee though, I’ve never seen one before! Happy FF, and have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

I am glad to know that you had a wonderful road trip. And catching up with the blogs really needs time. I have not done that until now and I have missed so much already. 🙁 I really wish I will have more time in blogging. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and glad you are back here at FF.
yes, Jhuls! FF is something I always look forward to every week. 🙂 I wish too that there was more time for blogging.
Two of my favourite fruits combined together 🙂
