Lychee Coconut Ice-cream (Vegan & no-Churn)

Lychee is one of the delicious summer fruit which is favorite of all age groups. The rough, red leathery skin of this fruit fully contrasts with the white and creamy fruit inside. Its beauty is also beyond description when one sees it in bunches, especially in the orchard. As we know already that the King of fruit is MANGO where as the Queen of fruit is LYCHEE. Lychees are typically enjoyed fresh. Just remove the rough red colored skin and then squeeze the fleshy part directly into mouth discarding the seed ๐Ÿ˜‰Lychee is a seasonal fruit, particularly summer is the time for this fruit to get abundantly.

Since this fruit is full of minerals, vitamins and some other nutrients, so lychee is also assigned with a named as Super Fruit. Lychee contains an impressive array of vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. This fruit has more vitamin C than the same amount of any other citrus fruit, a significant amount of potassium and as much fiber as an apple. Well, at my place this is the time for the queen of fruit. So here I have come up with an ice-cream using this super food as Lychee Coconut Ice-cream.

This is the first time I have tried the recipe as well as tasted the delicious flavor. This ice-cream is an refreshing one for these ongoing hot summer days. There is no need of any ice cream machine to prepare this richest and creamiest homemade ice cream. This lychee coconut ice-cream is a vegan and gluten free ice cream. We all in my family thoroughly enjoyed this creamy refreshing flavored ice-cream. Addition of coconut is a wow factor here. Kids will definitely love this ice-cream. 

So do try this lychee coconut ice-cream soon. If you tried my recipe and enjoyed fully, then please share some pictures of your creation with me.
