The Lucuma fruit has been honored both spiritually and culinary since ancient times in the Peruvian culture. Today, lucuma is one of the regions most enjoyed foods, and is a popular ice cream flavor among Europeans and South Americans. A wonderfully versatile sweetener that is chock-full of maple-like flavor, a little lucuma powder blended into a smoothie, ice cream, pudding or pie filling makes for a truly delicious experience.
Suggested Use: Mix 1 tablespoon with recipes, yogurt, ice cream or smoothies.
