Lucuma Fruit

Lucuma fruit is a sweet and creamy tasting, orange-yellow fleshed fruit that is grown in South America. In a powder form, it can be added to desserts to boost sweetness, creaminess, and nutrition. Lucuma is actually the most popular ice cream flavour in Peru.

When ground into a powder, lucuma is extremely rich in calcium and potassium. Powdered lucuma has more nutrients and fewer calories than the fruit.

We love using Lucuma in our chocolate bar recipes due to the gorgeously smooth, creamy sweetness it adds to the chocolate, whilst reducing the amount of other sweeteners needed.

We use lucuma in our vegan, dairy free Mylk bars, to add to the creaminess of the hemp and rice mylks.

We also use it in our Signature Seventy chocolate bar, to smoothen out the bitterness of the raw organic cacao, as well as both our Euphoric Orange and Uplifting Mint bars.

For more information on the nutritional properties and benefits of lucuma fruit, please see our Science page. On this page you’ll find links to various independent scientific studies, including how Lucuma fruit is high in fibre, minerals, beta-carotene, calcium, postassium, phenolics, antioxidants and niacin.
