Creamy Apricot Chai Smoothie

Pin It

Apricots, fresh off of our local fruit trees, are everywhere right now! I was fortunate enough to get a big box picked directly off of a friend’s tree in the Okanagan, and froze three big bags for fall and winter.

This smoothie not only has all the benefits of these delicious little fruits, including eye health (Vitamin A), boosted immunity (antioxidants like Vitamin C) and fibre, but also the anti-inflammatory and DELICIOUS additions of cardamom, ginger and cinnamon, which are excellent for digestion as well.

Ingredients: Makes one massive smoothie

2 cups of apricots

1/2 frozen banana

1 cup of coconut milk

1 cup of water*

1/4 tsp ground cardamom

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp agave or maple syrup

Method:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. If you’re sharing this baby, which would be very kind and generous of you, make it pretty by garnishing with freshly grated cinnamon and a cinnamon stick, as shown above.

*I like tart tasting foods. If you want this a bit sweeter, use coconut water.

Cheers!
