This Andean fruit, present in legends and on inherited ceramics, is called in Peru, thanks to its nutritional virtues, the gold of the Incas.
Its flesh, slightly floury, its orange-yellow color, its good nutrient content, also make it nicknamed "egg fruit" by our English-speaking friends who are superfood lovers. Most people who taste lucuma experience the sensation of a new, motherly and comforting taste.
Our silk lucuma goes well with everyday meals: 1 to 4 tsp per plate or per cup. Add Lucuma to your daily preparations (drinks, dishes, desserts) sweet or savory, hot or cold. You can, for example, dilute it in a vegetable milk (eg: almond milk), incorporate it into the flours mix of your pastries to make them even sweeter and tastier.
Discover lucuma also in the new drink Gold Lucuma, a vegan Golden Latte with lucuma, turmeric and maca.
