Lush Lucuma Smoothie
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – lucuma is one of my all-time favourite superfoods, second only to cacao. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of its sweet, caramel-esque flavour or the fact that you can make raw fudge with it in minutes. Lucuma –is a Peruvian fruit also known as egg fruit. It’s rich in vitamins (B1, carotene, niacin and B2) iron, fibre and has a really sweet syrup-like taste.
The combination of banana and lucuma is absolutely divine and together they make a perfect smoothie that tastes heavenly and provides the drinker with a burst of nutrients and energy from a natural and wholesome source. Finish it off with your favourite nondairy milk and you’re onto a winner!
Serves 1 – 2 (makes approximately 500ml)
- 2 small/medium or 1 large frozen banana(s)
- 2 tbsp lucuma powder
- 1 cup non-dair y milk (I used almond milk)
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup water (or more milk if you wish)
Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend for 20 – 30 seconds, until smooth. If you want the smoothie to be thicker then omit the extra water/milk – if you want a thinner consistency then just add extra liquid.
