Lychee Strawberry Coconut Water Smoothie
A Lychee Strawberry Coconut Water Smoothie is probably the most refreshing summer drink you can imagine. Sit by the pool and sip on this electrolyte replenishing wonder in the heat of the day for the sweetest relief. What is a lychee? Think grape meets watermelon meets strawberry — holy deliciousness!
Lychee is a citrus fruit that hails from China and it’s loaded with Vitamin C (like over 100% of your recommended daily intake in one cup). If you can find it in stores, snatch it! Combine fresh strawberries, the creamy, cool fruit of the lychee with coconut water and ice in a blender. It will hydrate you, taste like a million bucks and it’s super simple to make.
