Apricot and Orange Smoothie

Total Time
Prep 4 mins
Cook 0 mins

This recipe (with measurements slightly tweaked) comes from the SMOOTHIES & JUICES 2006 cookbook that I received from my current cookbook swap partner, Tansy. Preparation time does not include the time for the apricots to soak in boiling water overnight.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put quartered apricots in a small bowl & pour boiling water over them, before covering them & leaving to soak overnight.
  2. In the morning, put the apricots & the water into a food processor or blender & process until pureed.
  3. Add orange juice to the mixture & process until combined.
  4. Pour into two tall glasses & top each with 1 tablespoon of yogurt & a sprinkling of brown sugar.

This made 2 huge glasses that the DM and DS thoroughly enjoyed for breakfast. I just put the ingredients into a large jug and stick blended the lot leaving a few chunky bits of apricot which they really liked. Thank you Sydney Mike made for Almost 5 Tag Game.

This is so refreshing. I love the combination of apricots and orange juice. It's a nice breakfast drink, although since today is a hot day, I might make it again later on.
