1/3 Photos of Stuffed Lychees on Skewers
4 hrs 20 mins
Frozen grapes used to be my favorite dessert, but now these are my number one! Fresh lychees can be tough to find outside of warm climates (and the season is short), but the canned fruit is widely available in Indian and Asian markets and supermarkets. Cook time=chill time.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Open the can of lychees and reserve the syrup to use for another recipe (great for a cocktail or stir fry sauce).
- 2Make sure the ice cream is very hard; this will make it easier to handle and give you more time to prepare the lychees. With a small spoon, scoop out about 2 teaspoons ice cream and stuff into one lychee as quickly as possible. I find it actually easiest to stuff the ice cream in with my (very clean) fingers. Repeat as needed.
- 3Place the stuffed lychees upright in a plastic container, and freeze for at least 4 hours before skewering and serving. It is O.K. to leave them overnight or for a few days in the freezer.
- 4Skewer the lychees, alternating between mint leaves. Four to five lychees work best on a skewer. Enjoy!
