One of my favorite things about China was being exposed to so many different kinds of food. My favorite food there?? Definitely the fruit. Oh, and bubble tea. And I kind of liked the chicken dishes that had colored sprinkles all over them, but only for the aesthetics. Anyway, I was delighted when I found some lychee juice at the grocery store the other day, and immediately grabbed it up. Granted, the first ingredient listed is pear juice... so pear juice (or a few pears) would work just as well for this light drink.
I made this up when I got home from school today because I accidentally bought a wrap that had olives in it (if you've read my about me page you'll know that I detest olives) and had rancid breath for hours. I wanted something scrumptious and cleansing immediately, and voila- a smoothie! I know that I've been posting non-stop about smoothies, which may seem ridiculous considering that all that you need for a good smoothie is some fruit or veggies. However, even though this recipe is super duper simple I thought that it would be a nice way to remind people to throw in some unexpected ingredients into their smoothies once in a while.
1 cup of lychee juice (there are variations on the spelling), pear juice, actual lychees, or chopped up pear
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana
Give ingredients a whirl in the blender and serve immediately.
Sweet tooth acting up?
Put a whopping dollop of whipped cream in with the fruit. Nummmm.
