Apricots & Almonds

A Sensational Spring Combination

Loved for their velvety smooth texture and sweet, slightly tart taste, apricots are a succulent stone fruit that reach their peak during the spring and summer seasons. Though small in size, apricots are packed with nutritional benefits. The nutrients they contain can help maintain vision health, while their beta-carotene and lycopene content make them a great heart-healthy fruit. They're also a source of fiber, which plays an important role in a properly functioning digestive system.

Sweet and delicious, apricots can be enjoyed as is for a healthy, convenient snack, and they're also fantastic when baked, poached or stewed. Their sweet-tart taste matches well with other fresh and healthy foods like cherries, oranges, peaches, raspberries and strawberries. They're also fantastic with almonds. Nuts such as almonds are a tasty, satisfying source of vitamin E and niacin, which are two key nutrients linked to brain health and the reduction of memory lost.

A fresh, in-season apricot and a handful of almonds make for the perfect healthy and delicious afternoon snack! For breakfast, add diced apricots to cereal or oatmeal, or mix the fruit into a hearty, wholesome pancake batter for a sunny morning meal that's sure to please. Apricots are also fantastic with yogurt—layer diced apricots, low-fat vanilla yogurt (which is also a good source of calcium!) and almond granola in a parfait glass for a breakfast that tastes great—and is good for you too!
