Every other Saturday, I get up at 4am and help with my local co-op. I love helping and I love getting to try all sorts of different produce. It forces me to use new ingredients and ones that I wouldn’t normally buy. We aren’t huge apricot fans at my house. So a few weeks ago, when we got a ton of little apricots I knew they wouldn’t get eaten unless I got creative. The kids prefer other fruits, but they do love smoothies.
My kids will do almost anything for a smoothie. And when I say almost anything, I mean almost anything. They clean their rooms, vacuum the floor, pick up the toys, I’ve even had the bathroom cleaned while I made a smoothie. Since the kids could live on smoothies, I try to keep them a bit healthy. No ice cream, usually no juice, very little added sugar if any at all. You get my point, right. I also add in veggies secretly too sometimes, but not this time. I wanted the apricots to shine!
The first time I made this I used greek yogurt…trying to be healthier…but it was way to tangy and over powered the apricot flavor. So, I tried again with plain yogurt. Pretty tasty! If you use vanilla yogurt then omit the vanilla extract.
