Lucuma is a superfruit that grows in cool and dry climate in Peru and is known as Gold of the Incas. It is rich in minerals such as phosphor, calcium and magnesium and good for bone strength. It also has wound healing, anti-aging and tissue regenerating properties and is low on the glycemic index. It has a sweet starchy maple syrup and pumpkin flavour which makes it great for sweetening drinks, desserts, smoothies and ice cream. I can imagine it tastes heavenly when fresh! It does have a slightly astringent flavour also so I recommend starting with a low amount in order to allow your taste buds to acquire appreciation for it slowly. In my opinion it is great as flavouring for home made ice cream. I bet you are dying to try it now!
