One of my favorite things about our backyard is having a fig and apricot tree. We anxiously wait for our apricots and figs to be ready to harvest! Our apricots are finally ready and the figs will take another month or two. Apricots are delicious right off the tree, but my son and I have some fun and delicious ideas of how we will enjoy all of our apricots! For starters, we made Apricot-Lemonade! A perfectly, naturally sweet, summer drink! Whether or not you have your own apricot tree, know a friend that has one, or purchase some at your local farmer’s market, we hope you enjoy this amazing fruit! Here is our recipe for Apricot-Lemonade! It’s a little thicker, like a smoothie, and makes a refreshing drink!
1. In a Vita Mix or blender, combine the apricots, dates, mint, lemon, water and ice. Blend until smooth.
2. Add extra water until you reach a desire taste, sweetness and thickness.

We can’t forget to mention the wonderful nutritional benefits of apricots. Apricots are rich in antioxidants and contain Vitamin A and carotenes which are essential for our vision and maintaining healthy skin. Apricots also contain Vitamin-C, another natural antioxidant. Vitamin-C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen-free radicals. Apricots are also a good source of minerals such as potassium, iron, zinc, calcium and manganese. Potassium is a heart-healthy mineral; an important component of cell and body fluids that help regulate heart rate and blood pressure. Don’t miss out on this delicious and nutritious fruit this season!
