Organic Lacuma Powder
About Our Organic Lucuma Powder
Lucuma (Loo-Ku-Mah) whole fruit powder is my favourite addition to my breakfast smoothie. It's got a rich, creamy texture and will turn your raw food creations into gourmet heavenly delights.
Sourced from farms in Pesco (central Peru), Lucuma is a raw gourmet, organic nutrient dense fruit. Dubbed the "Gold of Incas" this exotic Peruvian fruit is celebrated for its flagrant flavour.
Lucuma is a nutrient dense fruit from Peru. It smells divine, and tastes like maple syrup flavoured ice-cream! In Peru, the yellowy-orange fruit pulp is added to ice-cream and is Peru's favourite flavour.
This exotic Peruvian fruit is also known as the "Gold of the Incas", and is also one of the lost crops of the Incas. Peruvian culture is steeped in traditions rich in fine foods and cultural culinary delights. The Lucuma name has been honoured both spiritually and culinary since ancient times. Today, this fruit is still prominent in contemporary celebrations.
Lucuma powder is really versatile and tasty, blending easily and well with ice-creams, baby food, yogurt, pies, cakes, cookies, smoothies, chocolate bars and desserts of all kinds.
How to use Lucuma Powder:
Just add a spoonful to your favourite raw desserts, bars or smoothies. Make a coulis from Lucuma and raw agave nectar
