  • Cut the coconut meat into small pieces. Do the same with the lychees.
  • Pour the coconut water into the blender. Add the sugar, coconut meat and lychees. Pulse, or process, depending on how fine or coarse you want the coconut meat and lychees. Mix with the lychee juice and chill for several hours.
  • Pour into your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • To serve, scoop as you would your ice cream. Top with fresh mint leaves, if you like.


If you don't have an ice cream maker, freeze the mixture and, while semi frozen, process in the blender again (or mix vigorously by hand) to break up the ice crystals. Do this every few hours until the texture is smooth. Depending on the temperature of your freezer, the process can take anywhere from six to 12 hours.
