Lucuma has been considered a delicacy in Peru since ancestral times and has treated the palate of Peruvians for centuries. Native to the Andean valleys of Peru and Ecuador, this unique fruit was considered a precious treat by the Incas. The Incas certainly had good taste! Ready to prepare some Lucuma Choco Bits? (Recipe makes 12-15 portions depending on size)
12 medjool dates
1/2 cup of almonds
3 tablespoons of Miski Organics Lucuma powder
1 teaspoon of cacao
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Mix ingredients on food processor until mixture begins to thicken and stick together. Mix should be able to take form when you shape it into balls. Add one tablespoon of water if mix is too thick. Decorate with shredded coconut at the end and put in fridge for 1 hour before serving.
Enjoy this nutritious and delicious ancestral treat!
