is dried and powdered lucuma fruit. Lucuma is often used as a low-glycemic sweetener and it contains nutrients like beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein. You can add it to smoothies, raw cakes or like in this case – to popsicles :)
is my favorite liquid sweetener because it’s fructose-free. I use it in pretty much all of my dessert recipes. If you don’t have rice syrup at home, you can easily substitute it with maple syrup or agave syrup.
I used unsweetened soy milk in this recipe, but you can use any plant-based milk – almond, rice, coconut, oat, hemp.. whatever your heart desires and what you have at home!
- Toss all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
