30 Fresh Apricot Recipes
These apricot recipes are a nice change from the usual fruit fare.
If asked to name your favorite fruit, you probably don&rsquot automatically think of apricots.
Like most people, you probably go for the more common fruits &ndash apples, oranges, bananas, etc.
However, apricots are a fantastic mixture of tartness and sweetness, so they&rsquore versatile and can be used in many dishes.
Apricots are total crowd-pleasers!
They aren&rsquot just delicious when eaten alone, though. These 30 amazing apricot recipes are proof positive that just about anything tastes better with apricots.
Recipe: Apricot Breakfast Smoothie with Oats and Yogurt
When apricots are ripe and at their peak, they have an irresistible tart, tangy and almost floral flavor. And because the flesh of an apricot is quite thick, the fruit makes a great addition to smoothies, requiring little more to achieve a velvety consistency.
To make this particular smoothie substantial enough for breakfast, I also like to add in oats and yogurt. Rolled oats may seem like an odd ingredient to use in smoothies, but when soaked and blended, they deliver creamy texture and earthy flavor — plus added fiber. The result is a smoothie that will keep you going until lunch.
Apricot Breakfast Smoothie with Oats and Yogurt
This smoothie can also be served as a smoothie bowl: Pour it into bowls and top with your favorite breakfast additions, such as berries, chopped nuts, toasted seeds, granola or wheat germ.
1 pound ripe apricots, pitted and roughly chopped
1/4 cup plain almond milk, plus more to get desired consistency
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
Pinch cinnamon, plus more to garnish
Soak oats in water for 10 to 20 minutes or overnight in the fridge. Place them in an upright blender along with remaining ingredients (except honey) and blend until completely smooth. Add honey to taste and extra almond milk, if needed, and blend again. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
Banana and Apricot Smoothie
This banana and apricot smoothie recipe is ready in less than 5 minutes! It's raw, vegan, sugar-free and ideal for breakfast!
- 2 bananas, peeled
- 6 apricots, pitted and halved (I used frozen apricots)
- 1 glass of water , or plus a little bit more, depending on how thick you want it to be
- 2 Tbsps pollen, optional
- 2 Tbsps golden flax seeds
- some ice, only if you don't use frozen apricots/bananas

Peach Apricot Carrot Smoothie
This carrot smoothie with orange juice, peaches, and dried apricots, is sweet, delicious, super creamy, and is a fantastic immune-boosting drink for breakfast or for a snack.
I created this crazy-amazing carrot smoothie for the new KitchenAid K400 blender that just launched. And, this awesome new mid-range blender completely pulverizes the carrots for a super smooth consistency.
How To Make An Amazing Carrot Smoothie
Carrots are naturally sweet and delicious. But, they can get mealy in a smoothie if you don’t pair them with creamy elements.
Here’s what I’m putting in this carrot smoothie:
- 1 cup (240ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1/2 cup (120ml) filtered water
- 1 cup (150g) peeled and chopped carrots
- 2 medium dried apricots
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 3 cups (480g) frozen peaches
Throw all of the ingredients into your KitchenAid® K400 blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until smooth and creamy.
I trialed this carrot smoothie in a lot of different mid-range blenders, and the K400 blender totally creamed the other mid-range machines. This blender is a GAME CHANGER.
The KitchenAid K400 Blender
I worked with the designers and engineers at KitchenAid on this new K400 blender for the last three years, and I am just so in love with this blender. I’ve been waiting for 10 years for a company to develop a mid-range blender that delivers the performance of a high-speed machine, and KitchenAid has done it!
Features of the KitchenAid K400 Blender
- 1.5 Peak HP motor that works with the blade construction and size and shape of the container for an incredibly efficient blend that matches a high-speed machine at much higher HP levels. It is incredible!
- 56 oz Blender Jar with reinforced lid – perfect size that fits under all standard counter tops.
- Asymmetric Blade that blends at four distinct angles to pull contents in for even incorporation.
- 3 Preset Recipe Programs: Ice Crush, Icy Drinks, and Smoothie
- 5-Speed Variable Speed Dial so you can completely control your blend at any speed.
- Soft Start® Feature that starts the motor at a slower speed to pull the food down into the blades and then quickly increases to the selected speed setting for efficient blending and to avoid ingredients splattering up into the lid and top sides of the blender container.
- Intelli-Speed® Motor Control which senses contents and maintains the optimal speed to power through all ingredients.
- Tamper to help push ingredients into the blades for an even blending vortex so everything is pulverized equally for the best textures.
- 16-oz Personal Blender Jar – to make smoothies to go
- 8-oz. Small Batch Jar – for pestos, sauces, baby food.
Match Your KitchenAid Blender To Your KitchenAid Stand Mixer
Nobody creates gorgeous colors like KitchenAid, and you can get the new K400 blender in:
- Matte Black
- Contour Silver
- Passion Red

Match your color to a stand mixer and other KitchenAid appliances. I have a matching stand mixer, food processor, kettle, coffee machine, and toaster to match my blender. My kitchen is gorgeous!

This was an interesting smoothie recipe in that it uses canned fruit as opposed to fresh or frozen. The bottom line is that it worked great. It was refreshing, full of apricot flavor and the vanilla in the yogurt gave it a well-rounded flavor. For more nutrition, I think you could sneak a banana into the mix and it would still taste great. I found that 1 cup of canned apricot halves equaled roughly the amount found in a 20-ounce can. I used 1/2 of the syrup from the can in my batch of smoothies. This was a fun, flavorful and somewhat unique smoothie. (This recipe was submitted in 2008. It was tested and photographed in June 2017.)
How To Make An Apricot Smoothie
Place all ingredients in the blender and pulse until smooth.
That's all there is to it. Super easy. Enjoy!
You may want to add a Tablespoon or two of sugar or honey as well, but I find the syrup on the apricots adds plenty of sweetness.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.

Banana Apricot Smoothie Recipe -
A pinch of cinnamon powder
Step 1 - Peel and cut banana into small pieces. Chop apricots into small pieces. If you are using fresh apricots, de-seed them.
Step 2 - Toss the fruits in the blender jar. Add water and blend till the fruits are fully mashed.
Step 3 - Add curd, milk, cinnamon powder and honey, and blend again. Pour the smoothie in a glass, top it with ice cubes or refrigerate for some time and serve.
You may add dry fruits, nuts and seeds of your choice and blend them with the fruits, or you may sprinkle nuts and seeds later on the top of the smoothie before serving. If you don't want to add anything else except the fruits, it's okay this smoothie already comes with the goodness of the two fruits proffering various health benefits.

Apple Apricot Smoothie
While overall quite tasty and satisfying, this smoothie tasted a bit like a general mishmash of fruity flavors - probably because that's what it is. I think it would have been better if the apple and apricots were more center stage. I'd consider ditching the banana next time and increasing the apricots. With that said, I truly did enjoy this drink and my 3 year-old daughter was wild about it. I'd give it a B+. (This recipe was submitted in 2004. It was tested and photographed in June 2017.)
How To Make An Apple Apricot Smoothie
Pit the apricot and peel if desired. Peel and core apple. Chop all fruit into 1/2-inch blender-friendly pieces.
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
This recipe makes two large servings. A healthy way to start the day!
Roasted Apricot Green Smoothie
If you know me at all in real life (although I bet it&rsquos pretty evident even just online too), you know I have the patience level of a small child.
When I want something, I want it now and it frustrates me to no end when I have zero control in making it happen.
This post is sponsored by Vitamin Shoppe.
In the simplest of terms, the year as it relates to food is broken down into two parts in my mind: peach season months (yay!) and non-peach season months (boo!).
There&rsquos really no other fruit that even comes close to my beloved peaches.
But here we are in May and despite the fact that they&rsquore popping up in the stores now, we all know the truth buy a few and be sorely disappointed in the mealy disgustingness that will likely greet you in your mouth due to the fact that it was likely picked from a tree in some south American country when still hard as a rock unripe.
So while every ounce of me wanted to grab the peaches in the wooden crate at the store, I refrained and looked to the right to see some gorgeous apricots I&rsquod normally glance over screaming, &ldquobuy me instead!&rdquo
I happily obliged thinking they&rsquod suffice as a peach stand-in for now, threw them in the cart and went about my shopping.
Later that afternoon, I cut one up and ate it in my pre-workout bowl of oat-bran (yes, I&rsquom like 90, I love oat-bran) and was floored at how sweet, juicy and just overall delicious it was.
That&rsquos when roasting them to make an apricot smoothie (in green form of course!) hit me.
Let&rsquos be real, green smoothies can be, well, very green tasting. Especially if using something like spirulina (although my spirulina smoothie recipe does a great job of masking its distinct flavor in a delicious way).
Greens make the smoothie pretty and all, but if it tastes like you&rsquore drinking liquid kale or spinach, looks don&rsquot go very far. Kids, mom was right. Looks aren&rsquot everything.
I can promise you though, this green smoothie tastes nothing like that.
With roasted apricots tossed in vanilla bean paste, cinnamon and sea salt and a scoop of Vitamin Shoppe&rsquos new AppeFIT apple punch, the spinach in this apricot smoothie wouldn&rsquot even be detectable if it weren&rsquot for its bright green color.

It&rsquos a supplement derived from all-natural spinach extract (appethyl) which may help fight hunger by slowing the digestion of fats and keeping you feeling full for longer.
It&rsquos not a meal replacement at all (not a fan of those), just an all-natural (as well as gf, dairy free, soy free and sugar free) addition to whatever you&rsquore currently eating (make sure there are some fats in there for it to do its thing best) and makes a great add-in for smoothies!
While I seem to be in a constant state of hunger these past 6 weeks (thanks to a cutting diet currently), I am able to at least not *think* about my next meal for every minute of the next 3-4 hours when I use AppeFIT, and for that, I&rsquoll call this a win.
