QUICK TIP –
Is this the sugar substitute you’ve been looking for?
Have you heard of Lucuma?
It’s an orange-yellow fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree which is native to Peru, Chile and Equador.
Lucuma is actually the most popular flavor of ice cream in Peru.
And it might be just be the sugar substitute you’ve been searching for.
What makes Lucuma even more appealing is its amazing health benefits.
You see Lucuma powder contains high levels of carotene (good for eye health and skin elasticity), Vitamin B3 commonly called niacin (helps with energy production) and Iron (boosts your immune system.) It also contains considerable amounts of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.
Rutger, The State University of New Jersey did a study that found that Lucuma promotes wound closure and tissue regeneration.
Lucuma powder, with its maple-syrup type flavor, can be added to smoothies, yogurt, protein shakes, granola, pudding, pastry or any beverage. Plus you can even use it to replace some sugar or sweetener when baking, cakes, cookies or pies.
