Preparation – 15 minutes

Tip: Freeze the passive ice cream bowl 1 day in advance.

Peel all the lychee, you can use a paring knife to make it easier. Remove the pit and add the lychee and the milk to a small saucepan. Skip the peeling part when using canned lychees.

Heat up the small saucepan using medium heat and pour in the milk. Let the milk absorb the lychee flavours for about 5 minutes. Turn down the heat when the milk starts to boil. Use an immersion blender to blend the mixture.

We like smooth ice cream, so therefore we pressed it through a fine sieve. But if you like pieces of lychee in your ice cream, there's no need to sieve the mixture.

Add the canned condensed milk, turn off the heat, stir, and let the mixture cool off a bit.
