Can someone tell me where I can find Lucuma. Neither of the HFS I frequent have heard of it??!! Is it a powder? What is it made from? I don't want to mail order it and cant believe no one has heard of it. I also want to make Carmella's butterscotch shake!!

I have never had lucuma, but it has been on my list of things to try for a long time! Here is some more info about it:
The lúcuma (Pouteria obovata) is a subtropical fruit of Andean origin. It is sometimes known as lucmo. It is also called "eggfruit" in English, a common name also given to the closely related canistel (pouteia campechina). The name "eggfruit" refers to the fruits' dry flesh, which is similar in texture to a hard-boiled egg yolk. The lucuma has particularly dry flesh which possesses a unique flavor of maple and sweet potato. Is a very nutritious fruit, having high levels of carotene and vitamin B3, and other B vitamins. The round or ovaloid fruits are green, with a bright yellow flesh that is often fibrous, but bears an aftertaste that some find odd and unappealing. The lucuma is native to the dry subtropical Andean coastal valleys of Peru; introduced later in other South American countries.

I, too, had to order it through the mail. None of the health stores around here had any, and I checked plenty!

This is awesome ! I'm happy to hear you (all who replied) are going to try this recipe. It works very well with meaty coconuts and especially if your blender is high powered and blend the coconut into a thick milk. Hope you enjoy.:p
