Thanks to all of you for great ideas and suggestions. Shannon the website is awesome. Now I can plan my dinner (no Chinese dessert). You are such a great group.

3 Fresh mangoes - Roughly pureed in a food processor
or a 1 can of Lychees (liquid and all) pureed.
1 packet of gelatin
water 4-5 cups
sugar to your liking

In a pan bring the water and sugar to a boil. Slowly stir in the gelatin and add the mango or lychee puree. Set it in a mold and allow it to cool.

Cut into diamonds and serve surrounded by other fresh or canned fruits like mandarin oranges.
This sounds great Yakuta. I love lychees.

Yakuta this sounds so good. I have a few cans of lychees in the cupboard so I would like to make this. How much sugar would you recommend? Lychees are so sweet to begin with that I wonder if any is really needed. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks

Hi GB, yes go easy on the sugar. I normally taste it at the end and adjust the sugar and only add it if necessary. In most cases you can skip it since the lychees are already in a syrup.

If you like lychees, lychee icecream is also delicious. I just posted a recipe for mango icecream for Sarah and you can follow the same recipe and just use lychees instead of mango. In my house and my family in general, lychee icecream is a favorite and it disappears in no time.

Whoa Yakuta! Lychee ice cream!! We own a very good ice cream maker and ice cream making is one of our passions... we created so many flavours but never thought of lychee!! And we love the fruit!! We must try this, thanks for the idea!
