The apricots at my local farmers' market are beautiful this week. I've been enjoying them sliced on top of salads, topped with a touch of cashew cream, and blended in this Apricot and Cream Smoothie. I combine fresh apricots with a handful of raw cashews for a not-too-sweet, satisfying refresher. The cashews make a dairy-free cream and provide a boost of protein. Simple and delicious!

2 apricots, pitted
1 teaspoon honey or 1/16th teaspoon Stevia
