      Hi Kayla, I haven’t tried that but I think it might get a little thick using dried apricot. Reply

    I’ve tried this recipe using the coconut water and also substituting the coconut water with apricot greek yogurt and a half a cup of fresh squeezed orange juice. Surprisingly the second day the orange juice really enhanced the apricot flavor. Reply

      Hi Tzivia, I don’t usually like milk in my smoothies because I find that it tends to separate when you let it sit. It will work and it will taste good though if you wanted to make those substitutions. Lately we’ve also been adding almond milk or even coconut milk to smoothies instead of water and it tastes great πŸ™‚ Reply

      It would give you that refreshing boost of energy! We froze a bunch of apricots so we could keep making it during the winter months.;-) Reply

      I love putting flax seeds in my smoothies. The flax seed oil is nice because it’s a large dose of Omega 3 at once, but flax seeds are great too! πŸ™‚ Reply

    Interesting that you add flaxseed oil.. I just add ground flaxseed πŸ™‚ ground so the kids don’t notice, but I suppose they wouldn’t notice the oil either πŸ˜€ But that’s the only “weird” thing! This looks delicious! Reply

      You can definitely use flax seeds. The oil is just more potent πŸ™‚ Reply
