A Refreshing Summer Shake

Lets face it, Australia gets pretty darn hot in Summer. Its humid, sticky and it just feels like you are in an oven 24/7. An icy shake is a great way to cool yourself down. When I went to Holy Basil with some friends I had a Lychee Shake. It was so good. Chunks of Lychee and ice. It was ultra refreshing.

At a recent farewell dinner, our friend Cecilia came with ingredients to try and replicate the drink we had at Holy Basil.

The shake was so much better than the one with had at the restaurant. Celz added some mint and lime to make it extra special.

Lychee Shake with a hint of lime and mint


2 cans of Lychees in Syrup
1 to 2 cups ice
Juice from half a lime
A few mint leaves


In a blender pour in lychees with syrup, lime juice, mint leaves and half of the ice. Blend until smooth. Put the rest of the ice into the blender and blend until all the ice is crushed.
Pour into tall glasses.
For an alcoholic kick, why not add some Midori or Vodka.

Don't you just love it when the recipe you try to copy from a restaurant turns out better?! Love the shake idea Kath - especially now that lychees are in season! (I might even be able to use fresh ones for this!)

I love Lychee shake. We usually have it with almond flavored gelatin in the shake. It is sooooo good!
