Mix Fruits with Grass Jelly

Let start off the New Year with something simple and sweet. Even though the weather is cold we still like to have something icy cold after dinner. I made this with Diana using the little ice-shaving machine. It was really hard to shave the ice with that little machine and we finally gave up and just put some ice cubes in the dessert. This type of dessert is something my family likes to prepare for family gatherings. For Chinese New Year we always add in some glutinous rice balls to it.
Ingredients :

1 can of black grass jelly - cut into little cubes
1/2 can of lychee
1/2 can of longan
1/2 can of sea coconut
some fresh strawberries - cut small
some fresh kiwis - cut small
juice of 2 lemon
some syrup from the lychee and logan
(amount of syrup depend on the sweetness you want you like)
Some ice cubes or shave ice

Mix all the above ingredients together in a big mixing bowl and serve cold.

Note : You can get the can lychee, logan, grass jelly and sea coconut from the Asian Store.

That right,the mini ice shaker is a pain when shaving but I managed to squeeze some out,rather rough the texture.I don't mind to have a glass of the mix fruit cocktail with or without the ice!
