Up Your Chia Pudding Game With Chai Spices & Lucuma

So, you've got your chia pudding routine down, but what else can you add for unique flavor, subtle sweetness, and additional nutrients?

Lucuma is a fruit native to Peru that can be found in powdered form. What makes this fruit extra amazing is that its flavor is reminiscent of sweet potato and maple syrup. It also contains iron and protein, making it a great addition to enhance both the taste and nutritional profile of a dish—that's kind of the ultimate win-win, right?
