Including Lucuma in your diet satisfies your sweet tooth while offering your body super-nutrition! Lucuma is an exotic super fruit from Peru which is prepared in powder-form. The lucuma tree has been known to live longer than 500 years and still produce fruit!
Lucuma’s subtly sweet flavor has hints of maple, cashews, and vanilla cake batter and combines wonderfully with almost any dish! Why you should like Lucuma beyond the flavor? it contains carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including high concentrations of beta-carotene, vitamin B3, and iron!
