This tastes like an unusual combination having apple with apricots.This is very sweet- maybe even too sweet. I don’t think it needs the honey added to it as well. This tastes better if you have it with yoghurt as it calms down the sweetness. The apples are rich in fibre, potassium and quercetin which has anticancer and anti-inflammatory actions. The dried apricots are rich in betacarotene and iron. This recipe is wheat free, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free and is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those following a detox.
