Nutrition per serving
- 425g can lychees in syrup
- 2 stems lemongrass, halved and bashed with a rolling pin
- 85g golden caster sugar
- 2 x 425g cans fresh mixed tropical fruits
- 100g seedless red grapes
- 6 macaroons or coconut biscuits, to serve
Drain the lychees juice into a pan and put the lychees in a large serving bowl. Add the lemongrass and sugar to the pan, heat gently until the sugar dissolves, then boil for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and set aside – the lemongrass will add flavour as it cools.
Strain the syrup over the lychees and tip in the fruits. Chill. Serve with macaroons.
