Sweet Tooth Smoothie

Fear not, the sweetness of this refreshing smoothie is sourced from whole fruits including one of the more trendy superfoods: lúcuma (Pouteria lucuma). This golden Peruvian fruit contains beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium, fibre and protein. It comes in a powdered form and is a low-GI sweetener, meaning it won’t give you the spike and crash that white sugar or high-fructose corn syrup do. On its own, lúcuma tastes like something between maple syrup and caramel.
