Mango is not the only fruit we look forward to in summer, litchi is another fruit many of us love and wait rest of the year for it. These small and round, ball-shaped fruits are so tasty that you can never stop at having just one; in fact, you need a bowlful of it to whet your litchi craving. Juicing litchi is another way of enjoying this summer-special fruit. But, if you are not really a fan of this fruit, which is sometimes a bit sour and acidic in taste (we admit), you just can't miss out on this wonderful food that comes only for a limited period in the peak summer. Alternative - make sweet desserts with litchi.
