Apricot Mango Smoothie (with a hidden veggie!) - The Produce Moms

Jumpstart your daily veggie intake by having an Apricot Mango Smoothie for breakfast. 

Apricots are a stone fruit that have a smooth, velvety skin that ranges in color from yellow to orange. They look like small peaches. Apricots have a firm flesh and a sweet yet tart flavor. (Some apricots are sweeter and some more tart, depending on the cultivar). Apricots from the U.S. are available spring and summer.

Apricot Mango SmoothieMany people pass up apricots for their more popular pals, peaches and nectarines. While all three are delicious in their own right, apricots deserve more attention. Their signature sweet flavor with a punch of tartness is unlike any other fruit. They are a treat to eat out of hand but their meaty texture also makes them perfect for cooking and baking. They are great for kids because of their small size and they don’t leave behind a juicy mess.
