Apricot, Coconut, Banana Smoothie
This is a perfect summer smoothie, when apricots are fresh and sweet, but it is a smoothie for the Gods. Apricot and coconut are a perfect combination, as neither cancels the other out, and banana’s affinity with apricots is legendary.
3/4 cup apricot nectar
1/2 cup light coconut milk
2 cups diced apricots, frozen
1 fresh banana, frozen
Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until fully liquid.
