I love it when a fruit comes into season and we can enjoy the low prices a ‘glut’ brings. That’s the scenario for apricots at the moment and I have scored a pretty good basketful this week to make into any number of dishes.
I plan to make a couple of desserts, a salad (with griddled apricots) and eat some just plain and simple this week, but first I sliced some for a delicious oatmeal this morning. They are sweet enough as they are but I added a tiny spoonful of low-sugar marmalade (or apricot conserve) for a bit of luxury. If you want to boost the protein then add a little protein powder, skimmed milk powder or a few nuts – your choice.
Don’t waste any time go and grab yourself a bargain now ….
½ cup low-fat milk
4 level tbsp porridge oats
1 ripe apricot, stoned and sliced
