Fresh Apricot Mint Smoothie

This is a positively decadent smoothie. Fresh apricots are a summer treasure, so it feels exceedingly indulgent to blend those beautiful pink and orange fruits into a thick, tangy smoothie.

I bought some fresh apricots, then put them in the back of my fridge. They failed to ripen sufficiently, so I dutifully placed them in a paper bag on the counter for a few days. When I opened the bag, those gorgeous fruits were dotted with brown spots!

Still edible and delicious, but not picture perfect enough for the tart I’d planned, I blended those beauties into a rich and scrumptious apricot smoothie. I added a little stevia to offset the tartness of the apricots, and threw in some fresh mint for a complimentary flavor. Sublime!
