Apricot N Banana Smoothie

Apricot has high mineral content, that makes it beneficial in cases of anemia, tuberculosis, asthma, bronchitis, and toxemia.Apricot is high in vitamin A, that is why it is very helpful in the removal of skin pimples and other skin disorder.Apricot contain lycopene, this substance can help prevent cancer and help to protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation, which may help prevent heart disease.Apricot, a wonderful diet food, providing a large amount of healthful nutrition to the body as well as keeping down caloric intake, as they are very low in calories as compared to other fruits..i love apricot, those small orange colour fruits r very sweet, tasty n fit well for making fruits salads as well as for juices..Tried out as smoothie with banana....

5nos Apricot (medium size)
1no Banana
2 cups Chilled milk
1/4cup Sugar

Take a blender, cut the banana into small pieces as well as apricots, i didnt peel the apricots, if u dont like u can peel them..add the banana pieces, apricot pieces, chilled milk n sugar... blend them well for a while..add the ice cubes to the smoothie, i didnt strain the blended juice...can also add 2 scoops of vanilla icecream while serving..
