Lychee Ice Cream Recipe

Lychee Ice Cream • paleo, gluten free, refined sugar free, soy free

It’s summer time here in Hawaii and the Lychee trees are loaded with fruit this season.

If you are not familiar with this fruit, lychee is a sweet, juicy and nutritious fruit native to China.

Lychee contains great amounts of dietary fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants.

The fruit is known for being high in vitamin C and B-complex vitamins such as thiamin, niacin, and folates. 

Lychee is also high in minerals such as potassium and copper and makes a great sweet snack this summer.

Paleo Lychee Ice Cream Recipe

My friend has a lychee tree in his property and he gave me a bag full of these little fruit. I had to do something with them and since the weather has been so warm here, I decided the best thing would be to make some refreshing, cold ice cream.

This ice cream is light and sweet, and full of lychee flavor. The texture is also very creamy and smooth. There are no refined sugars added to this ice cream and it is full of healthy fats and antioxidants.

    Thank you for this recipe. We followed the instructions from beginning to end. It’s definitely a healthy alternative.

    To me, it seems like it needs more sweetness and more lychee flavor, but perhaps I’m too used to the more unhealthy ice creams sold in the stores.
