Lychee Ice Cream Recipe

Lychee Ice Cream


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup thin coconut milk
  • 1 cup reserved lychee syrup from a can of lychees
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2-3/4 cup sugar or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped lychee (about 12 pieces)

Preparation Method

  • Combine cream, coconut milk, reserved syrup, egg yolks and sugar in a 1 1/2 - 2-quart saucepan.

  • Cook gently over low-medium heat, stirring, until thickened and mixture coats the    back of a wooden spoon.

  • Stir in vanilla extract and remove from heat.

  • Strain mixture into a metal bowl and chill, covered, for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  • To freeze, follow ice cream machine’s manufacturer directions, adding chopped    lychee when ice cream is almost frozen.

  • Transfer to a container and freeze until serving time.

  • Alternatively, freeze ice cream in a bowl with a tight-fitting lid and stir well every hour    until frozen.

  • This will result in an ice cream that has somewhat of an irregular texture, but    delicious nonetheless.
