Mandarin and Apricot Smoothie

Total Time

This is another fruit smoothie recipe I have collected in my attempt to find dairy free smoothies. This one sounds really good. It takes a bit of preparation but you could easily do the prep the night before and just blitz it up in the morning. I found this in the instruction booklet that came with my Kenwood smoothie maker.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 ounces dried apricots
  • 10 fluid ounces white grape juice, chilled
  • 14 12 ounces mandarin oranges in juice, drained


  1. Roughly chop the apricots and place in a bowl.
  2. Pour over the grape juice.
  3. Cover and chill for 2 hours, or overnight if preferred.
  4. Put the apricots and grape juice into the blender or smoothie maker.
  5. Add the mandarin segments.
  6. Blend for about 40 seconds or until it is the consistency you require.
  7. Serve in chilled glasses.

Made this twice, once with the listed ingredients, & once with my pretty standard vanilla yogurt added! Both are very nice, & although I prefer the latter version, I DO UNDERSTAND your desire for dairy-free smoothies ~ I have friends who are ALWAYS on the lookout for sucy recipes! The one things I did differently was to partial freeze the drained mandarin oranges to give it MORE of a chill! Still this makes an OUTSTANDING smoothie & one worth adding to my smoothie keepers!

This was quite different and very good! I LOVED the flavor of the mandarin oranges in there. I made half WITH some vanilla yogurt added, too...and those the kids liked better than without the yogurt. I also added a dash of "orange" flavoring to tweak the flavor of orange somewhat. *Made for Aus/NZ Swap March 08*
