Sweetened lychee puree

Lychee puree is getting trendy these days. Indeed, it suits many purposes, among which sorbet, gelified inserts or coktails; and it pairs well with many other flavours. Our puree can be described as a cloudy juice of white pink colour; with delicate floral flavour, naturally sweet and with no acidity. Made of a 100% single Lychee Chinensis variety from Madagascar, fresh lychees are received at full maturity and processed in the small plant in Madagascar (which we support financially). Packed in a 1kg tub.
