Pineapple Lychee Smoothie





Its getting warmer by the day.. and evenings are pleasant with cool breezes.. We're really enjoying summer now ! What better time to enjoy pure tropical bliss..!

Pineapple is my favorite tropical fruit. I love how juicy they are.. and the balance of sweet and tangy bold flavor of the fruit totally blows me away. Although pineapples are available all year round, the best time to savor the ripe ones is between March and July.

Here is my little experiment with Pineapple and Lychee as the main ingredients. I added some Banana to add more sweet and to get a thicker consistency. I am thrilled that the combination works and yea, hubby liked it a lot ! Its a success !! Please try it out and send me some feedback !!!!

INGREDIENTS:

Fresh Pineapple - 1, chopped into cubes, 2 cubes shaved & 1 slice for the topping
Ripe Banana - 1/2
Fresh Lychee - 6 to 8, peeled and seeded OR
Lychee Juice - 1/2 cup
Buttermilk - 3 to 4 tbsp
Cheery - for topping


COOKING TIME: 10 minutes

SERVING: Serves 2




METHOD:

1. Cut all the fruits. Pineapple in cubes, Banana into coins, Lychee into halves.
2. Put all the fruits into a blender and blend in.
3. Add the buttermilk, blend again.
4. Pour out the smoothie into beverage glasses.

To Serve -
5. Top it up with shaved Pineapple, Pineapple slice and Lychee with Cherry on top!

This smoothie is full of pulp and unique flavors. Enjoy it chilled, add crushed ice for extra chill power.
Enjoy !
