Lychee and labneh frozen yogurt.

For those of you still fighting cold weather, I am sincerely sorry; temperatures are in the high over here .........
Well, labneh is drained yogurt, right? I had a jar of labneh in the fridge and I used it to make this, mixing it with a can of lychées and the result was conclusive. I will be using labneh from now on, it is perfect for a frozen yogurt treat once in a while.

INGREDIENTS:
1 can of lychees in syrup (8 ounces or 225 g.), lychees drained
8 ounces of yoghurt cheese (labneh)
rind of one lime
4 tablespoons of powdered sugar

METHOD:
Drain the can of lychées and reserve the syrup; place the lychée and 1/2 cup of the syrup in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture is puréed; add 8 ounces of yoghurt cheese and the powdered sugar and process. Add the lime zest and process.
Place in the bowl of the ice-cream maker and let it run until the mixture turns into frozen yogurt. Store in the freezer.

NOTE: If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, freeze the mixture and then place the frozen mixture cut into big chunks in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times and you will get the texture of ice-cream.

Use fresh lychées on the top....... :)
