Additional Information

Instructions

  • To make the shake, combine the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and combined.
  • Thread the lychees and pineapple cubes onto two skewers.
  • Using a spatula, smear some of the whipped coconut cream around the outer rim of each glass, then sprinkle with the lime zest. Gently pour in the shake and top with a scoop of sorbet.
  • Cut a small slit in the pointy end of each watermelon wedge, then slide onto the rims of the glasses.
  • Spoon more coconut cream on top of the shakes and top with the fruit skewers and lime. Insert the popsicle so it sits upside-down and sprinkle with the blueberries.
