Lucuma Shake (V)

This recipe is vegan, low on the Glycemic Index, and naturally sweet.

Lucuma is a fruit native to my country of Peru. Lucuma powder is low in sugar yet rich in fiber. It also contains smaller amounts of other nutrients, including calcium, potassium, zinc, and iron. Lucuma is also rich in antioxidants, which may offer protection against various conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
