Apricot Bliss Smoothie

Apricot Bliss Smoothie

Apricots are one of my favorite summer treats, and you can freeze them when they are in season to enjoy year round. Rich in Vitamin A to protect your eyes, Vitamin C to defend you from free radical damage, potassium to encourage proper heart function and fiber to nourish the bowels, these little fruits are super nourishing.

You can change this recipe up a little if you like by using young Thai coconut meat, mango or papaya in place of the banana. All four options will taste great.

You can also switch up the herb and use ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg or cloves in place of or in combination with the mint.


  • 1 cup fresh or frozen apricots
  • 1 fresh or frozen banana
  • 5-6 mint leaves, stems removed
  • 1 cup coconut or almond milk

Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender, blend and enjoy!
