Fresh Apricot Smoothie

Fresh Apricot SmoothieA lovely friend of ours gave us a huge box full of fresh apricots. They are in abundance this year in Utah! So, I did many things with them this week: canning with my mother and aunts, slicing and freezing them, and additionally, we have been enjoying them every morning in our morning smoothie. After many trials, his version is our favorite. Our cute six-year-old asked to be in a picture with it, because he loves smoothies, and apricots.  

Fresh Apricot Smoothie

10-12 fresh apricots, pitted and cut in half
1 tray of ice cubes (about 2 c.?)
1 c. plain or vanilla yogurt (you may want to sweeten the plain with 1/4 c. sugar or honey)
3 T. orange juice concentrate
1-1 1/2 c. water
1 t. vanilla
a dash of cinnamon (optional, but a great suggestion from our Aunt!)

Blend together and enjoy! Makes about 6 cups.
