Lucuma

Pouteria lucuma

Lucuma is an extremely nourishing fruit all the way from Peru. Locals call it the "Gold of Incas" and celebrate it as the symbols of fertility. Being abundant in vitamins, minerals, and protein, lucuma brings powerful benefits to you, including supporting your skin health, blood sugar levels, and even cardiovascular health.
From outside, it looks like an avocado, but inside it is a yellow, soft and sweet fruit that's a perfect cross between a caramel and a sweet potato in the world of fruits. Though it's sweet enough to satisfy your cravings, it has a low glycemic index, making it suitable for diabetics and those watching their sugar intake.
Though finding fresh lucuma may be difficult if you are not in Peru or near an ethnic supermarket, lucuma powder has become a widely available superfood supplement, bringing you all the benefits you need. Lucuma, powder or fresh is a perfect addition to smoothies, complete protein shakes and baking recipes.
One way to make your body really happy and healthy is by giving it lots of lucuma.
