Apricot Almond Butter Smoothie
Apricots are in season now and I just bought a whole bunch at Trader Joe's. I love munching on them as is but this morning I made a smoothie; sometimes recipes just pop into my head and this one did just that last night. It came to me when I came back from a night out with my BFF, it was a real NYC evening, we walked from the West Village all the way uptown, through the beautiful, lit up streets of this magnificent city.
2 apricots (they can be frozen)
8 oz of non dairy milk (I used oat, coconut would make it super creamy)
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of turmeric
2 tbsp of almond butter
A few ice cubes (if the apricots aren't frozen)
Blend everything in your high speed blender until everything is smooth. Serve in your favorite glass or mason jar! Buy organic apricots if you can. To make it nut-free, use sunflower seed butter. Freeze the apricots to avoid using ice cubes. Add chia seeds for an extra boost of energy.
