Melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil gently Remove from heat and stir in 1 tablespoon of raw cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon of Lucuma powder.
This should be a spreadable paste that is not liquid runny. If it is too thick add a little more melted oil, if it is too runny add a little more powder. Add optional extras: Chopped walnuts or almonds or pistachios Sea salt (not very much) Cocoa nibs (optional) Chopped goji berries Spread on a non stick pan – I use tupperware lids – and freeze for 5-10 mins.
Remove from freezer and break up into rough matchbox sized portions.
Keep in the fridge or freezer **This is a nutritionally-dense superfood made from the edible fruit of the Lucuma tree – resembling a persimmon in appearance.
It’s loaded with antioxidants like beta carotene and is also a quality source for complex carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins such as niacin (B3) and minerals such as zinc, calcium and iron. As well as the flavour hit, lucuma is also a brilliant natural sweetener being low in sugars and low on the glycemic scale, but adding a subtle sweet flavour similar to maple, to your dishes.
You can buy it mostly in powdered form, as a result of grinding down the fruit’s root (from Amazon)
