Lucuma is the number one flavor of ice cream in many South American countries, but many people here in the U.S. have never heard of it, let alone tasted its rich, sweet, maple flavor. Once you taste these exotic, raw ice creams, you may be temped to invent new flavors using organic Sunfood Lucuma Powder.
Maca and raw cacao work great with lucuma also! Try adding a chocolate sauce to the below recipes, made using raw cacao powder and cacao butter. Even better, cacao nibs add just the right amount of crunch to complement smooth, luscious ice cream. Enjoy!
