Is there anything better than cheesecake? Lucuma, a subtropical fruit, has a distinctive sweet caramel taste. It is a great source of antioxidants, fiber and B vitamins. Grinding it into powder makes these benefits ultra-concentrated. And to top it all off, the cashews are a great source of fiber, iron and healthy fats. With a smoothie this delicious and satisfying, you won’t care if it starts getting dark at 4:30PM.
Pro Tip: soak the cashews overnight to make them extra easy to blend and extra creamy.
