Litchi Sorbet

Summers are incomplete without litchi and that is why we have litchi sorbet to beat the heat. You can also add a little twist to it by adding vodka.

Time: 30 minutes


  • 500g of fresh litchi
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 lime for lime juice


  • Put the litchi in a pan with the water and sugar, and bring to a boil. Mix well, making sure the sugar has
  • dissolved fully. Then allow it to cool.
  • When the compote has cooled, deseed the litchis and keep aside the syrup.
  • Mix the litchi flesh with the sugar syrup and blend in the lime juice. Chuck them into the food processor and
  • blitz until everything is chopped and of even consistency. Then if you like, press everything through a sieve for
  • extra smoothness.
  • Freeze the mixture until solid.
  • Once solid, smash up the sorbet and churn again for 5-10 minutes. Freeze overnight and then serve.
  • Note: You may if you like, add a dash of vodka, for an alcohol-laced sorbet.
