Smoothie is a full package of 'health' and 'taste'. Made with fruits, milk and/or curd, water with the additional goodness of nuts and seeds, smoothie is as refreshing as it is nutritious. Perfect to quench you thirst and hunger at the same time, this drink can be easily made at home with foods of your choice. Here we have an extremely useful recipe of banana apricot smoothie that just doesn't taste great; it may also accelerate weight loss and boost immunity.
Banana apricot smoothie brings together two highly nutritious fruits and creates a magical melange of sweet and tangy flavours. Both banana and apricot boast of high fibre content and are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, making them perfect for your weight loss and immunity-boosting diet. The mushiness and sweetness of banana and milk, mixed with tanginess and sourness of apricot and curd, creates a wholesome drink that simply tastes superb. Dried apricots are available all year round and can be easily found in grocery stores and fruits and vegetable markets. If you can use fresh apricots, it's even better.
