Foodie Friday: Lychee Ice

Lychee ice: slushie drink made with lychee fruit

I’m clinging onto the last days of summer and fighting off the heat with cool drinks like this. Lychee is one of my favorite fruits (although I do prefer the similar-tasting longan more).

Supposedly, you shouldn’t eat too many lychees at a time. I grew up categorizing Chinese foods into warm, cool, and neutral. The lychee fruit is warming.

When overeaten, it can cause negative side effects—like nosebleeds. I haven’t experienced that when eating the fruit (thank goodness!), but I still limit myself from overindulging in their syrupy sweetness.

How do you stay cool in the summer?
