Apricots

Apricots, a relative of peach and plum, are a tart fruit that is a great source of beta-carotene, Vitamin C, and fiber. They are most available May-August in the US and imported from South America in the winter, but dried apricots are available year round. To get the most antioxidants, however, fresh, fully-ripened apricots are best.

Selection Process

As apricots ripen, their pale yellow color becomes softer and richer in orange. They should be refrigerated in a relatively humid area and used as early as possible. Wash apricots gently in cold water and cut slices into your NutriBullet. Include the skin, but take out the pit.
