Our savvy di­eti­tian checks the shelves for the health­i­est in-sea­son foods — such as the ex­otic ly­chee!

There are tonnes of rea­sons to love the prickly, pink-skinned ly­chee, a fruit that adds an ex­otic nu­tri­tional twist to both mains and desserts.

LUS­CIOUS LY­CHEES Sweet ben­e­fits

With 10 ly­chees con­tribut­ing just 296kJ (71cal), they’re the per­fect light and re­fresh­ing sum­mer fruit. Plus, they’re rich in im­mu­nity-boosting vi­ta­min C and gut-friendly fi­bre.

Pretty in pink

To choose the per­fect ly­chee, look for fruit that’s pink or red. Ly­chees don’t ripen af­ter they have been har­vested, so en­joy them soon af­ter pur­chase.

Fast & ver­sa­tile

Sweet and juicy ly­chees pair well with a range of flavours, from a trop­i­cal, fruity cock­tail to a rich duck curry. Fresh or canned, ly­chees add a sub­tle hint of sweet­ness.
