Lychee Lime Mint Sorbet Recipe

Lychee are one of my all-time favourite fruits. Fresh is better than canned, but I found a dusty can in the back of my pantry and decided to make some easy lychee sorbet.

This lychee sorbet reminds me of the kind of lychee slush you get at bubble tea houses, minus the bubbles and less sweet. It’s super refreshing and a good palate cleanser too.

On another note, last night, after hearing that a solar storm would make possible to see the Northern Lights, Mike and I took a drive to see if we could see them. We drove pretty far away from the city; far enough away that we could see the light pollution that is Vancouver. The stars were gorgeous and plentiful, but no aurora. We’re going to try again tonight. It’s one of my dreams to see the lights and we’ve never had a chance this far South before, so I hope tonight will be the night!

  1. You know.. ive never had a lychee… what is the closest flavors you can say this tastes like? especially with the lime and mint infused into it.

    Lychees have a very distinct flavour that I find really hard to describe. They’re sweet and a tiny bit floral tasting.
