Apricot Buttermilk Shakes

I found Wisconsin apricots at the Farmer’s Market the other weekend – I might have to look into what it would take to grow my own. Apricots are a lovely little stone fruit – bright and tart, with an unassuming peel and an easy to remove pit. My toddler ate two a day for a week.

I had four left, so I decided to whip them up into a fun drink we could have with a summery dinner. It was very cold, tangy, and just a bit sweet. A lovely way to end a hot, humid day.

Apricot Buttermilk Shake

2 cups buttermilk (I used lowfat)
4 apricots, pitted but not peeled
1/3 cup honey
handful of ice

Whir in blender until very smooth.

    More buttermilk :). This might work as an ice cream as well

    I think it might – but you may want to sweeten it up a little. The honey complemented the apricots nicely. If you make an ice cream, come back and let me know.
