Apricot and almond shake

step by step

  • 1Tip the apricots and their juice into a blender (or use a large jug and a hand-held blender), add the almonds and blitz until smooth.
  • 2Pour in the almond milk, add the ice cubes, agave, flaxseed (if using) and a grating of fresh nutmeg. Add a couple of drops of almond extract if you wish, but add it judiciously so that it doesn't overwhelm the fruit flavour. Blitz again and divide between 2 glasses to serve.
