In Peru, where I lived for several years, few people ate the fruit plain, but instead used it in desserts, especially in ice cream and mousse. I grew especially fond of lucuma ice cream, but it's not easy to find here in the U.S. I discovered lucuma powder a couple years back at my local Latin American market and now add it to pancakes, smoothies, cookies, cakes, and, now that I have an ice cream maker, I make my own lucuma ice cream that is almost as good as what I used to buy in Peru.
I see here that some people use this as a sweetener substitute for sugar. It's beyond me how that would work. I don't recommend that use but YMMV. And, one more thing, do research on lucuma if you're hoping to use this as a nutrient-dense supplement. I'm not sure if it lives up to that hype. But if you just plain love the flavor of lucuma, like I do, this particular brand is very good. I've bought some brands that taste more like wheat gone bad. This definitely tastes like quality lucuma.
