Description

Organic Lucuma Powder has a delicious maple flavour.

Organic Lucuma Powder is a sweet and delicious powder that is perfect for sweetening smoothies, healthy cakes or desserts.  The organic Lacuma powder is ground down from a fruit native to Peru and it is rich in antioxidants and nutrients.   The tree produces flowers and fruit all year long in a subtropical environment.

Lucuma was used by the Incans as a nutritional food and it is still used widely in Peruvian cuisine.  It is a perfect addition to desserts and is one of the most popular ice cream flavours in Peru.  It is sweet to taste but has a low glycemic index which makes it a popular addition for low sugar diets.

If you don’t know where to start with organic lucuma powder then sprinkle it over fruit and yoghurt or add it to smoothies and juices.

It combines well with Organic Maca Powder.
