Peach, Apricot, lettuce smoothie

It took a while, but I finally found some ripe apricots! I love these little orange dry-ish type fruit. One day I’d like to have a apricot tree in my backyard that would offer up sweet ripe golden nuggets like I found here.

I guess, since I’m at it, I’d love to have a full collection of fruit trees in my back yard. I’ve been putting it off for years now, but I know that the next place I move to will have room so that I can put in 20-30 different trees with a wide verity of fruit. I’ll have apples, pears, plums and figs as the base trees. To that, depending on the type of weather the area will have, I’d add peaches, apricots and cherries. Between all the trees, I’d grow different berries – raspberries that is.

Back to the smoothie.


  • 2 peaches
  • 4 to 5 ripe apricots
  • Bowl garden lettuce
  • 1 ½ cup watermelon juice

This is going to make a bit more than one quart.

But it will be runny. The watermelon gives is a light watery texture that makes it really easy to drink. You almost have to slow yourself down so that the mouthful’s mix with saliva adequately. You always want to make sure you ‘chew’ your smoothies to activate your saliva glands to really pump out the digestive enzymes. You don’t want to miss any of this wonderful nutrition!

I think I’ll make this one again!
