When we were creating our take on the perfect Mother's Day breakfast, we wanted to add a little somethin'-somethin' to make it irresistible...
We had no choice but to reach for the Lucuma.
This unsung South American superfood boasts a full-bodied maple/caramel flavor and a range of benefits including being a source of zinc, calcium, vitamin C, niacin (vitamin B3) protein, iron, and Lucuma is particularly high in beta-carotene. Not to mention it's Certified organic!
We drizzled this moreish sauce over 2 different versions of Gluten-free Crepes, one Vegan and one flourless - both delicious!
This sauce is super simple and adds a wow-factor to any sweet dish or dessert.
