Description

Raw Lucuma Powder
An exotic, slightly sweet subtropical fruit grown in South America, the taste of lucuma is incredibly unique. With rich flavors of maple, custard and caramel, it’s long been a local favorite ice cream flavor. The lucuma fruit has green skin, with a bright yellow-orange flesh and a large seed in the middle similar to an avocado. Also known as eggfruit, mamey sapote, and zapotillo, lucuma is high in fiber, and has potassium, zinc, iron, and vitamin C, making it both a delicious and nourishing superfood.

The Sunfood Difference™
Our lucuma powder is completely pure and free of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, solvents and additives. It is made by drying the most ripe and flavorful fruits at a low temperature and gently grinding them up into an easy-to-use powder. This process preserves the delicate flavors and nutritional qualities of lucuma.

Enhances protein shakes! Review by LJ

I use Lucuma powder to flavor the Sunfood Natural Flavor Protein Powder for later in the day. I prefer their Cacao Powder with the protein for first thing in the morning. It's nice having different flavors to choose from!! (Posted on 8/31/14)

Great addition Review by Stephanie

I use this awesome superfood powder in oatmeal, in baked good recipes, in smoothies, overnight chia or overnight oats. It makes pancakes fluffier and more nutrient dense. I'm a fan! (Posted on 6/29/14)

Great tasting and useful as a sugar substitute Review by The Warden
Rating
I have been using my package of lucuma for some time now and have enjoyed it in smoothies and baked goods. I have used it recently to replace 1/4th of the sugar in a nut butter cookie recipe and it came out tasting better as it pairs well with coconut sugar. (Posted on 4/30/14)
Lovely Flavor Review by Christina

I've used the raw lacuma powder in a raw cake recipe and a smoothie. It adds a rich and slightly caramel flavor which is great in dessert recipes. The Sunfood lacuma arrived fresh and blends very well. I plan to order it again as soon as I finish the bag I ordered—great flavor and a superfood—you can't beat that! (Posted on 1/15/14)

Excellent! Review by Sharon

Lucuma powder is a great addition to my raw chocolate creations. It's a natural, low glycemic sweetener, and adds a creamy texture to the chocolates. (Posted on 9/25/13)
wow! Review by Elizabeth
Rating
I really liked the taste of this lucuma powder! I found it creamy and custardy in flavor, like all its relatives in the sapote family. I put some in my cashew milk smoothie with a bit of coconut sugar, and the taste reminded me of the crusty burnt sugar on top of a creme brulee. I made another and threw in a banana for added potassium, and the taste reminded me of bananas foster. I can't wait to try it with some raw cacao and see what THAT does.. (Posted on 8/9/13)
