Lychees are one of my favorite Asian fruits. In the US, if you can find them, they're best eaten fresh when they're in the peak season of the summer months, otherwise you can usually only find canned or frozen ones.
In this video recipe, I'm combining canned Lychees with the slight tartness of limes. I was so happy at how this sorbet recipe turned out when I first attempted to make it even though I used canned Lychees. It's super refreshing and it allows the flavors of the lychee to really stand out.
TIP: While Lychees themselves are fairly sweet, you will need to add sugar to this recipe. Not enough sugar will result in an icy sorbet, while too much can make yours slushy. This recipe yields a super creamy sorbet, with just the right texture of creaminess.
