Superfood Smoothie: Lucuma Ice Bomb!

Lucuma, “nature’s caramel”, is found in the highlands of Peru & Ecuador. Lucuma is a highly nutritious fruit, containing carotene, vitamin B3, and other B vitamins. It is especially rich in beta-carotene, niacin and iron with large amounts of calcium and phosphorus. It’s a natural sweetener with a low sugar content and a maple like flavour, used widely as a Superfood alternative to white sugar.
