Kale and Lucuma Shake

October 19, 2012

Author Notes:

We love green juices and smoothies but buying them at juice bars can get pricey! Luckily they’re easy to make at home. This one is made special (and sweet!) with lucuma powder made from a South American fruit. An awesome super food, it’s got beta-carotene and iron too!

Lots of health food stores carry it and some Whole Foods stores do too. Sunfood.com is a good source too.

I love lucuma. Reminds me of Branch's Circus Peanuts (candy). Thanks for a healthy way to enjoy those flavors!
