creamy sapote-lucuma smoothie

Our neighbor has an orchard near South Point and gave us a few sapote fruits to try. I thought, why not pair one exotic fruit with another exotic sweetener-lucuma powder. Lucuma powder comes from the Peruvian lucuma fruit. I recently purchased the powder at our local health food store, Island Naturals and have to say, I love it. I haven’t done the nutritional research yet, but I’m guessing organic lucuma powder is a safe bet. This smoothie turned out to be sweet enough for a dessert. However, we enjoyed it for a midday snack!

For the organic creamy sapote-lucuma smoothie, blend:

Ingredients:

  1. 1 1/2 cup frozen sapote chunks
  2. 1/2 banana
  3. 1 1/2 cups rice milk
  4. 1 tbsp. lucuma powder
  5. 1 tbsp. flaxseed
  6. dash of cinnamon
  7. 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
