Lychee Gelatin Salad

Lychee and Fruit Cocktail Jelly

Recipe by :  Ariel Jasa,  Mandaluyong City, Philippines

Lychee Gelatin Salad is molded gelatin with canned lychee fruits and canned fruit cocktails, a refreshing dessert served as it is or with evaporated milk.

I use a lychee flavor gelatin pack which gives the extra lychee punch, but sometimes, if that is not available, I go with the unflavored gelatin and add the lychee syrup.

I substitute some of the water in the recipe with the liquid in the canned lychee, but I cut back, about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the sugar because the syrup is already sweetened.


  • Mr. Gulaman Powdered Gelatin
  • Canned Lychees
  • Canned Fruit Cocktail


  • Sugar
  • Evaporated Milk


  • 1 pack Mr. Gulaman gelatin(25 gms), Lychee flavor
  • 1 can Lychee fruit (565 gms)
  • 1 can Fruit Cocktail (825 gms)
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 6 cups Water
  • 1 can Evaporated Filled Milk

1   Drain the canned Fruit Cocktail and Lychee in a strainer and cut the lychee fruit to desired chunk sizes and set aside.  

2   Dissolve the gelatin packet in water.

3   Stir in the sugar and bring to a quick boil to dissolve the gelatin and sugar, turn the heat off.

4   Arrange the fruit cocktail and lychees in a decorative mold, if available. Try to have the cherries at the bottom so they would be visible when mold is inverted.

5   Pour the gelatin into the prepared mold and cover with a plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm.

6   Invert the mold on a serving platter and leave it there until the gelatin releases itself(about 15 minutes or so).

7   Serve cold as it is or with some evaporated milk poured on top.
