Summer Apricot Julius Smoothies--perfect solution to a hot summer!
For those of you that missed our apricot syrup from yesterday's post, you'll want to make up a HUGE batch of this syrup to have in your fridge. We have used it over pancakes, put it in some muffins, and have now loved having it in a smoothie. It was a hot summer day and the kids were wanting a snack. We decided to make an apricot version of an orange Julius. The combination was SO delicious and refreshing. I can't wait for you to give these a try and love sipping on this cold drink as you enjoy the last few days of summer before kids go back to school (here in Utah anyway--gotta love the track system). Hope you're having a great weekend!
*These smoothies work great in a Blendtec blender (I couldn't live without mine). If you have a smaller blender, half the recipe to make sure everything fits.
Summer Apricot Julius Smoothies

1-2 cups of ice cubes
3-4 cups milk
