Strawberry and lychee sorbet & guestposting at Go Bake Yourself

Hi my lovely readers! Happy 2013! I’m finally back in action. Sorry it’s taken me so long to recover but I’ve really been quite busy while I was in China, plus bad internet connections kept me away. Now I’m desperately trying to adjust to this Melbourne weather and trying not to get heatstroke…I just came from -2 degrees after all.

This seriously hot weather is actually good for my post today as the lovely Uru from Go Bake Yourself has allowed me to guest post for her. The post actually went up yesterday here but I only managed to find time to put it up on my blog today. Hope all my lovely readers will head on over to Uru’s blog to see the recipe and check out all of her other fantastic baking adventures!

Please note, as I made this recipe in September, lychees were not yet in season so feel free to substitute canned lychees with fresh ones and use water instead of the lychee syrup. If doing this, increase the amount of sugar by 1/2 cup.

While the rest of the world is shivering in their coats and huddling under the Christmas tree to keep warm, we Aussies have got out our thongs and bikinis and cracking open icy cold beers to enjoy with our beautiful barbecued meats next to the pool or the beach.

Christmas is almost always scorching hot for us and we love it. Yes, although we don’t know what a ‘white Christmas’ really means, nor do we understand the concept of Santa Claus in his thick wooly red coat coming down from a chimney, we do still know how to enjoy our Christmas and of course the holidays that come with it.

For us it means an abundance of Summer fruits and delicious ice creams and there’s no better way to enjoy this Christmas than to have this refreshing and easy strawberry and lychee sorbet. It’s time to make lots of it and invite all the kids (and adults) over for a delicious treat. After all, Christmas means sharing and giving, but most of all to party and have fun! This recipe is so delicious I’m sure even those of you in cold places will want a bowl. 😉

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I had making (and eating) it.

    What a rich colour! The recipe sounds awesome. I’ve never considered strawberries and lychees as a combo before. I must try it! :) Also, welcome back! :)
