169. banana fig apricot smoothie

Healthy and filling

   A few dry figs (anjeer) along with some dry apricots (alu, khubani) and a banana. Now that's a lot of fiber and anti oxidants all served in a glass along with calcium and potassium. What am I talking about? It's a smoothie. If constipation is a problem, have this smoothie as its full of fiber. It's also a good start to the day when you have to fast. Good for patients recovering from an illness as it provides a lot of energy and vital nutrients.

BANANA FIG APRICOT SMOOTHIE
For 2

1 frozen banana 
6 dried figs
8 dried apricots
10 to 12 almonds
2 cups chilled milk
½ cup water
  1. Wash the figs and apricots to remove any grit.
  2. Soak the figs and apricots in water overnight.
  3. Remove the seed (stone) from the apricots.
  4. Cut apricots, figs and almonds into pieces.
  5. Put all the ingredients into a blender along with the water and liquidize.
  6. Pour into tall glasses and serve immediately.
Tips:
  • Add crushed ice if you don't have a frozen banana. Use normal banana instead.
  • Replace the banana with mango or chikoo (sapota, sapodilla).
  • Add dates if you like.
  • I sometimes add 2 tbsp of oats to make it into a wholesome breakfast.
