What’s Lychee

Lychee is also known as “litchi” or “lichee”. It comes from China with quite a hong history. You may wonder how it taste like because of the scary, bump shell. Don’t worry, inside the shell, a creamy, juicy flesh is pleasing. You peel the thin red scaly skin to reveal the white and soft juicy fruit pulp and one large black seed.

Lychee or lychee flavor has been widely incorporated with other ingredients for tasty food like lychee jelly and lychee syrup.

Ingredients for Lychee juice

Fresh lychee or canned ones

You can use both fresh lychee or canned ones. But you can skip syrup for canned ones because they contains more sugar.


Use filtered water for the best result

Lychee syrup

If you get some lychee syrup, adding it can denser the flavor. You can skip sweetener like syrup for a healthier option.

Mint leaf

We tried to add some mint leaf into the juice, it brings a lovely light green color and a strong aroma of mint.
