This mango apricot smoothie is like dessert in a glass. What is so amazing is that with just a three different fruit whipped up in a blender in less than one minute you can have a perfect meal ready to go! There is no added sugar in this smoothie, there is absolutely no need for it. The key is using really ripe, fresh fruit. When fruit is ripe the natural sugars in it are naturally so sweet you won’t need to add anything else. The simplicity of ripe, whole, organic, raw fruit blended is really a treat in itself. No dairy, soy or added sweetener needed here! So I invite you to enjoy the simplicity of this smoothie and its natural sweetness and share it with your family and friends.
1 mango peeled, seed removed, and cut into large chunks
4 ripe apricots, seeded and cut in half
10-12 organic strawberries, with green tops
1 Tbsp lemon juice
(optional) 1 cup ice
Mix all ingredients in a blender until creamy. Pour into a large glass and delight in every sip! 🙂
