In Peru, this popular fruit is called the “Gold of the Incas.” Lucuma comes from the Andes, and is even a popular ice cream flavor in Peru.
Its maple taste has made the superfruit a low-glycemic sweetener that packs a punch of nutrients in every spoonful. Lucuma is rich in beta-carotene, which is vital for eye health, boosts your immune system and protects your body against free radicals. Vitamin B3 keeps energy levels high and your nervous system running smoothly.
Use lucuma as a sweet addition to any dessert, baked good or smoothie. It’s also simple to add a dash or a sprinkle to your morning oatmeal or yogurt.
