Here almost all stores sell the canned lychees but never the fresh ones. Last month I decided to give it a try especially for ice-cream. It turns out that if you use the syrup you get pretty good flavor from one can

Lychee Icecream
Ingredients
1 Can of Seedless Lychee
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Milk
3.5 Cup Cream
1 Lemon

Method
  • Take out lychees from the syrup and put the syrup in the mixie.
  • Add in sugar and milk and blend it till the sugar is disolved.
  • Mix in cream and lemon juice and whisk a bit.
  • Add it in ice-cream maker and let it set.
  • Fine chop the lychees and mix that in the ice-cream around 3-4 minutes before the setting is complete.

Notes
If using fresh lychees just use around 30 lychees. Puree around 15 of them with 2 cups of water and use that instead of lychee syrup and finely chop remaining lychees. You might need to use probably 2/3 cup of sugar.
The lemon helps in bringing out the taste from the lychee.

    I want to make this ice cream for New Years eve. Does it matter what kind of cream I use?

    Sorry for being late. Was on vacation hence couldnt reply earlier. I normaly use pasturized whipping cream (not the heavy one) but if using heavy one, you may reduce the quantity.

    Hey Amazing, mouthwatering dish….Lychees are my favourite fruit and I also love the juice.. I recently found KDD Harvest’s lychee juice which is apparently a new launch.. I am hooked on to this juice.. where can I find seedless lychees? I am tempted to make this recipe…


  5. Hi Rammy, sorry I am late in replying but you can bind seedless lychees in canned section in grocery stores.
