My new favorite breakfast smoothie!
Love the sweetness the Lucuma powder provides. I hope to make it to peru soon and discover all these wonderful fruits available there.
In addition to satisfying your sweet tooth, lucuma is gluten-free and a source of antioxidants, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals necessary for bodily functions and of benefit to the immune system. When mixed with the other ingredients it makes for a great start to your day.
(2 large servings) plus extra
- 1 pear (skin on, diced, no core)
- 1 orange peeled and chopped
- 2 peeled frozen bananas (I just keep them chopped up in a ziplock bag)
- 4 dates (chopped)
- 1 Tsp of vanilla bean paste
- 1 Tbsp lucuma powder
- 1 Tbsp diced ginger root
- 1 cup Almond milk
Blend all in a blender and give it a try. Sometimes I will add a few ice cubes to chill it off more and thin it out.
You can try your own smoothie combinations of course.. but this works for me. – get creative!
