Raw Lucuma Powder from Peru - Superfood Certified Organic (350g) by Honest to Goodness

Lúcuma is a nutrient dense fruit from Peru. The tree is a long lived, evergreen, and belongs to the Sapotacea family being similar to the canistel and sapote. It smells divine and tastes like maple syrup flavoured ice-cream!

This exotic Peruvian fruit is known as the "Gold of the Incas", and is considered one of the lost crops of the Incas. Peruvian culture is steeped in traditions rich in fine foods and cultural culinary delights. The Lúcuma name has been honored both spiritually and culinary since ancient times. Today, this fruit is still prominent in contemporary Peruvian celebrations.
This versatile ingredient is produced from the fibrous and nutritious flesh of the lucuma fruit, native to South America. The flesh is dried and ground to form this nutrient dense powder.

Serving suggestion:
Add a dessert spoonful to your favourite dessert or smoothie, or sprinkle over your favourite toasted muesli!
Lúcuma powder is really versatile and tasty, blending easily and well with ice-creams, baby food, yogurts, pies, cakes, cookies, smoothies, chocolate bars and desserts of all kinds.
 
Lucuma is a great substitute for caramel, maple or butterscotch flavours in your favourite desserts.
