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
- 2 peeled frozen bananas (I just keep them chopped up in a ziplock bag)
- 2 red plums, sliced
- 1 cup of wheatgrass
- 3 leaves of green shiso
- 1 Tbsp lucuma powder
- Juice of one lime
- 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!
