Grate a teaspoonful of lemon zest.

Remove the vanilla and set the seeds aside. Pour the mixture into an ice container and freeze for 3 hours. Around 15 minutes before serving, remove from the freezer and refrigerate. Peel the mango and cut into fine slices. Arrange in a round pattern, remove the lychees from their shell and arrange on the plates with the mango. Add a scoop of granité to each plate and serve immediately, decorated with vanilla seeds.
