Lychee juice recipe, litchi smoothie

Litchi juice recipe - Lychee is in season. Now fresh lychees are available in fruit market. Each and every fruit vendor is selling lychees. It is available only for a few days and then vanishes from the market. So, when they are available, I bring lychees in  large quantity and freeze them. Both frozen and fresh lychee tastes great. This is a cholesterol free fruit and good sources of vitamin C and dietary fiber. It also contains good amount of copper and potassium. Lychee has a cooling effect on body. So one must eat it during summer if it is available. Try out this refreshing juice during summer season to beat the heat and enjoy the divine taste of this tropical fruit.
