Why Lucuma is the Best Superfood in the Cinnamon Rice and Everything Nice Smoothie Recipe


hey everybody today we are making the cinnamon rice and everything nice smoothie recipe today I’m Jenna welcome to our little piece of the internet for those of you who don’t know i’m the founder of GreenBlender and GreenBlender sends you all the pre-proportion ingredients superfoods to make amazing smoothies right in your home and every day I make one of those smoothies right here with you really fun so if you’re watching welcome thanks for watching feel free to put your name and where you’re watching from in the comments below and love to hear from you so today we are using one of my most favorite super foods in the whole world lucuma powder it’s just amazing so the reason why i love lucuma powder is that it is a great natural sweetener it’s a great alternative to using sugar it’s low on the glycemic index that means it doesn’t like your blood sugar now lucuma fruit on the outside kind of look like an avocado they have a thin green skin but when you open it it’s bright orange it has a pit just like an avocado it’s lightly sweetened it kind of tastes like between a sweet potato and maple syrup so lightly sweetened the great way to add a little extra sweetness to your smoothies and it as the great dimension to your smoothies so it’s also known as the “Gold of the Incas” It has been used in South and Central America for over 2,000 years and only recently has it become a thing to use in the United States now one of the main reasons because of this is because lucuma fruit fresh starts to ferment very quickly so you’re not going to find any lucuma fruit fresh in the United States they’re going to find them in jellies or as juice or powders so people look out for it it’s a really great fruit it’s a really great superfood. It’s high in iron it gives your energy levels of booths because with iron it helps with the transportation of oxygen in your cells, so its going to make you feel energetic it has B3 in it which is found usually in meat so it’s a great way for vegans and vegetarians to get that vitamin b3 so let’s get started I’m going to show you what else is in the recipes pretty simple today we’re going to do a cup of rice milk, one pear 1/2 avocado a teaspoon of cinnamon a teaspoon of lucuma powder and a tablespoon of hemp seeds going to taste delicious. So let’s get started here I will just throw in my right milk you can actually make your own rice milk I’ve never tried to do this and I actually should have looked up the recipe before I start talking about it but I see all you have to do is cook some… I’m not sure I’m gonna look it up and put it in the comments below I think it’s just rice and you blend it and then you strain it and that’s what rice milk is at least that’s what I think it is all right it’s going to add a lot of the creaminess to this smoothie I’m going to throw in some hempseed which also add to the creaminess factor this really is super creamy I can already tell we’re using avocados, we’re using hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are one of my favorite seeds to used because they are so soft that they’re very easy to blend it doesn’t matter what type of blender you have they will blend up really quickly you don’t have to soak them at all all right lucuma in now this is a very simple recipe like I said it really only has pear and avocado with a few boosters going to be really delicious it’s very high in fiber going to give you some energy is immune boosting which is always a good thing it’s a great way to start your day the longer you let the pear ripen the sweeter it will be so even if there’s brown spots on the pair don’t fret that just means that it’s getting riper and riper and sweeter I’m going to throw in my avocado I love avocados it really makes it so creamy we have so many avocados in the test kitchen right now have you ever made chocolate pudding with avocado just chopped avocado dates and tablespoon of cacao powder and it tastes like regular pudding but nobody knows that it is actually just avocados all right let’s blend this up see how it goes all right this is going to be delicious. I already tell, I’m going to love it. Cheers Taste like cinnamon, it’s really creamy a little bit sweet it’s going to be a perfect morning treat perfect afternoon snacks please let me know what you think in the comments below and I’ll see you tomorrow cheers
