Lychee Recipes

Summer means Mangoes, Lychees, Peaches, Cherries.

These are all my favorite fruit which can be had in all different ways like making juice of it, Mock tails, salads & some yummy desserts.

Summer has its own fresh fruits & vegetables which are to cool the body temperature . Eating Seasonal & Local as I have always insisted will give you all the benefits of this produce.
