Lychee and Tender coconut pudding/ Litchi and Tender coconut dessert / Easy recipe

 The fragrance of the lychee fruit is like an exotic perfume and the pulp is really  luscious.

Did you know lychee has been a sought after fruit since long long time .Wiki says in the 1st century fresh lychees were in such demand at the Chinese Imperial Court that a special courier service with fast horses would bring the fresh fruit from Guangdong.  The emperor had the fruit delivered at great expense to the capital.I am not at all surprised because that is how enticing the fruit is!!

So when my crate  bag arrived I tried two recipes .The other one will be coming soon.
As I began peeling the fruit the peel started curling finally turned out  into all these roses u see here.I ended up with a bed of roses. That pic in my face book page : ) 


This recipe is adapted from  Blessings From My Kitchen .I knew Tisa had  this  recipe in her blog so as soon as I got hold of some fresh lychees I went  straight there but some how I could not open her blog.Next day I contacted Tisa and she immediately mailed me the recipe.Is it not a blessing to have such blogger friends!!Thank you so much dear my husband I just loved the pudding.
