Great addition to drinks

It is a great addition to smoothies and my blend of hot chocolate.
Great for vegetarians

Being a vegetarian I need to ensure my iron intake is regular - since I started using Lucuma powder my health has notably improved; I have more energy and heal quicker than ever before. It is delicious when added into smoothies and I also add some into cooked oats, muesli and banana ice-cream.
Saves any dodgy smoothie experiment!

New to the world of smoothie making, I sometimes make some pretty awful concoctions. Then I grab the lucuma and / or baobab powders and it magically rescues it back to being palatable :-)
(yes I know I could toss the smoothie out but wheres the adventure in that??)
A family favourite

My family cannot get enough of this. My hubby and kids love it in their smoothies - a very creamy addition, and that keeps me happy because its an easy immune booster to include in their diets.
