Organic lucuma powder is made from the fruit of the lucuma tree, which is native to Peru, the South American country where it was once a treasured as natural source of sugar and a powerful symbol of fertility by the Incas. Often known as “Incas Gold”, organic lucuma powder boasts an exceptionally low glycaemic index rating, meaning that it offers a slow and gentle release of energy without causing a rapid spike in blood sugar levels.
An ideal substitute for refined sugar, organic lucuma powder is also teeming with a variety of nutrients including vitamins (B1, B2, B3 and B5), minerals (such as iron, potassium, calcium and phosphorous) and fibre.
- 1/2 cup of organic lucuma powder
- 1 cup of organic cashew nuts
- 1/4 cup of agave nectar
- 1 tsp. of organic vanilla bean powder
- 1 cup of spring water
The unique flavour of this luscious lucuma ice cream is bound to be the talking point of any dinner party, yet it couldn’t be any easier to prepare…simply pop all of the above ingredients into a blenderand blitz until nice and smooth. Next, scoop the ice cream into a suitable container and place into your freezer for around 8 hours prior to serving. Serve with a crunchy topping of ground cashew nuts or with a liberal scattering of sweet mulberries and watch them come running back for more!
