This vegan cream comes together in minutes and surprises with a great combination of flavors. Lucuma, a South American fruit recognized for its role in reducing blood sugar and high blood pressure, adds mild sweetness and exotic undertones to this cream. Cashews, on the other hand, contain a richness of healthy fats and essential nutrients, like copper, zinc, or vitamins E, K, and B6. Sweetened with maple syrup, this lucuma recipe is definitely a keeper.
This healthy lucuma cashew cream is delicious on its own or with fresh fruits, like strawberries, mango, or bananas. It can also complement a rich variety of healthy desserts. Some great ideas include grilled peaches with lucuma cashew cream and pistachios or lucuma cashew and maca chocolate cream in a jar.
