Using lucuma powder in smoothies or shakes is way to get a boost of antioxidants, minerals and B vitamins. The natural sweetness of lucuma means the powder can be used as a sweetener in place of sugar or honey. Because it also contains protein and trace minerals, this low glycemic sweetener can not only help prevent blood sugar spikes, but also curb cravings and appetite. The fruit has long been said to aid in fertility, and it has been a Peruvian symbol of fertility for several millennia. Fresh lucuma has also long been said to aid in healing and speed up wound closure, making it a powerful natural healer with purported antibiotic, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. The flesh of the lucuma fruit is commonly used as a folk medicine among the native South American people where the fruit grows.
