Lucuma powder can be used when baking and preparing desserts, providing sugar-free sweetness to cookies, homemade ice cream or cakes. In Chile, lucuma ice cream is a very popular flavor, even more so than chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. This is a lovely South American-style recipe for Lucuma Ice Cream Cupcakes that is free of refined white sugar. Note that dates are used for additional sweetness.

What You'll Need

  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup blueberries (or raspberries, strawberries etc.)
  • 1 cup  almond milk (or water)
  • 2 tablespoons lucuma powder
  • 1 cup kale (or spinach, or Swiss chard)
  • ½ cup frozen mango
  • 2-3 pitted dates (chopped)

How to Make It

  1. Place almond milk or water into a blender.
  2. Add all other ingredients. Blend until smooth.
  3. Enjoy right away. Smoothies are best consumed when they are made, rather than allowing them to sit or refrigerate.
