Vegan Aprium Milkshake

Vegan Aprium Milkshake
  • Prep 5 min

For those of you who don't know, an aprium is a sweet late spring and early summer stone fruit that is 75% apricot and 25% plum. Its natural sweetness makes it the perfect fruit to use in desserts, preserves, salads, or, like in this case, in an ice cream-less milkshake. Apriums look like apricots, except for their smooth skin (like a plum). Handle them with care to avoid bruises; and if you buy them unripe, keep them in a paper bag until they become soft enough to eat. Once they are ripe, keep them refrigerated, search for a few good aprium recipes, and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 banana, peeled and sliced
  • 4 ripe apriums, pitted and chopped
  • 4 apricots, dried and chopped
  • 1/2 can light coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Directions

  • 1
    Place the banana slices side by side on a plate, and freeze for at least 1 hour.
  • 2
    When the banana is frozen, process the apriums, apricots, coconut milk, and vanilla essence in a blender, until completely smooth (make sure there are no large pieces of apricots left).
  • 3
    Add the frozen banana and blend until smooth but frothy.
  • 4
    Serve immediately.

  • You can soak the dried apricots for an hour or overnight to make the blending process easier.
  • If you want, you can leave the dried apricots out of this recipe (it will be slightly less sweet, but still sweet enough).
