4 Lychee Popsicle - Ice, Ice Baby

The surly wind gushed through my front door, strewing my once neatly laid floor mat into a corner. The lighter decorative items fall over. You'd think that it would be a cool day to just hang out but I found it impossibly hard. I was pouring in sweat (an exaggeration) even with all that wind.

All I could think of was a nice cold drink or ice cream to help ease the discomfort I was feeling from the heatwave. I was reminded of a cool snack I used to serve during parties. It was a handy recipe and quick to do.

Mostly, it was going to be a soothing respite in this humid weather. So I decided to make a tray for myself. Check it out - Lychee Popsicles! It IS addictive..I found myself walking to the fridge every once in awhile, eager, but also lamenting that I really shouldn't overindulge.

I want one too says Mr. Snowman

Now this is what I call a "cool" idea, crunchy but not hard

Sweet lychee with cucumber and a lil lemon

Easy peasy

A rough guide, as usual.

Ingredients:
- Lychees (from a can) or alternatively Rambutans, Longans (your fancy)
- Toothpicks
- 1 small cucumber, finely chopped
- A little bit of lemon juice and lemon zest


Todo:
- Mix chopped cucumber with a little bit of lemon juice and zest.
- Mix Lychee juice (from the can) with a bit of water to dilute it a little (so that it's not too sweet). Leave aside.
- Stuff cucumber mixture into a piece of Lychee.
- Place into ice tray.
- Pour some of the diluted juice into the Lychee, let it overflow a little.
- Place a toothpick in the center and freeze for a couple of hours.

- Ready to serve, when frozen.

Tastewise : A sweet lemony flavour, lightly crunchy, not hard on the teeth.
