Once referred to as the Gold of the Incas.

It’s tasty flavor and aroma are hard to describe or compare to any other. Some may say it tastes like caramel custard and others a bit like pumpkin. Its texture, unlike most fruits, is dry, quite starchy and with a paste-like consistency that melts in your mouth.

Lucuma is an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins especially beta-carotene, niacin and vitamin C, and also a good source of minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and remarkable concentrations of iron.

The combination of complex carbohydrates, minerals and fiber make it an excellent low-glycemic addition to recipes.

The carotenoids in Lucuma have powerfull antioxidant & immune-enhancing activity and promote Proper Cell Communication.

Regular consumption can also increase energy levels in the body through the concentrations of iron promoting blood oxygenation.

In its raw powder form, lacuma fruit can be used as a natural and nutritious sweetener, and it is an excellent flavouring for ice cream and smoothies.

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.

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??)

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.
