Fruity, thick and nutty! A great way to have a breakfast on the run. Blend it up and take it with you. Enjoy this drink full of calcium and protein! The raisins are the sweetener but if you like it sweeter you can add some sugar or honey. Freeze the apricots the night before if you have time.

This recipe made interesting use of the contest ingredients. It's thick like a milk shake. I added some honey as suggested in the introduction. As much as I love eating cashews, I think I would like this smoothie better without them. (I know, then it wouldn't have 5 contest ingredients!) I recommend freezing the apricots as recommended so your smoothie will be good and cold.

Holy smoothie. This is like drinking dessert for breakfast, honestly! I used dried apricots and vanilla soymilk instead of the powdered milk and water, and- wow. Sooo sweetly scrumptious. Thanks for posting!

Raisins in a smoothie ~ Who'd a thunkit! It took me a bit longer to put this all together, but I wanted the fruit soft so soaked both raisins & dried apricots in hot water for an hour, & by the time that was done, the water was room temp, so I used that water in place of the cold water & ice cubes! I also made a double batch, 'cause I wanted to see what the texture & taste was like right after mixing the ingredients {my first serving] AND the next morning when I had the last of it! This makes for a very tasty drink & I thoroughly enjoyed it! Many thanks! [Made & reviewed as a recipenapped bonus in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
