this is one of my all time favourite blended fruit drinks. it is simple to make, never disappointing and good at any time of the day. use frozen strawberries for this. you can also freeze the litchees once you've drained them but it's not necessary.
enough for 1 serving [or 2 smaller ones]:
1/2 c frozen strawberries
4 - 6 litchees, canned *you need the juice
1/4 - 1/3 c litchee juice from can
*soy milk, vanilla flavoured or plain [enough to thin it to desired thickness]
it is hard to say exactly how many of each to put. you need to try it yourself and play around. i suggest using equal amounts of fruit and adding the litchee juice first. the litchee juice adds amazing flavour and makes it not necessary to add sugar. don't add a alot or it will be too watery — you can always adjust it later. blend the fruit and some of the juice. then add the soy milk to thin to the desired amount. if you don't like the taste of soy milk, the litchee flavour is strong enough to mask it making it virtually undetectable.
you can also fortify this by adding some soy protein isolate powder, available at health food stores. only a spoonful or two will be enough.
*you can also use other things like yogurt, milk, orange juice, almond milk, rice milk, etc. i prefer vanilla soy for this.
LOL — found these versions of vitasoy brand. who knew?!
