It has been a while since I posted a smoothie recipe. This fresh and fruity Apricot Pear Smoothie was sitting in draft mode for far too long. Good thing apricots are still in season though it will be coming to an end soon. For some reason these beautiful orange colored fruits are not as popular as peaches or nectarines. More dried apricots are eaten and used in cooking than fresh apricots.
Since apricots are much smaller fruits, I have combined it with juicy Bartlett pear and almond milk. Can’t go wrong with pears. I always have a supply of organic pears in the refrigerator as it is both my boys’ favorite fruit.
As always, I prefer not to use any sweeteners in my smoothies. Add some honey if you like your smoothie a little sweet. Do check out this link or the “beverage” tab at the drop-down menu above for other smoothies on this blog.
- 2 small apricots, peeled and stones removed
- 1 pear, peeled and cut into small pieces
- ½ cups (120ml) almond milk
Combine apricots, pear, and almond milk in a blender. Blend until smooth. Remove and serve immediately.
Combine the smoothie with either one of these energy bites for a fuss-free power breakfast. Please click on the picture to get to the post.
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day!
