Apricot Mint Smoothie - dairy free & vegan

It's apricot time! Yay! Let's all cheer for apricots! I love them so much. We actually had an apricot tree growing up but wasn't as crazy about them then as I am now. And apricot and mint? Such a divine combination. With all that in mind, I set out to make a delicious apricot smoothie this morning. This is so refreshing and yummy.

Apricot Mint Smoothie

1 cup lightly flavored tea (I used Adagio from Lupicia - green rooibos with lemongrass) or water
2 large apricots (3-4 small), pits removed
1 1/2 handfuls of macadamia nuts
1/2 tablespoon chia
1 tablespoon hemp protein
1/2 teaspoon maca
1/2 teaspoon chlorella
2 dates, pitted
2 stems of mint, leaves only
8 or so ice cubes

Blend all but ice till smooth. With blender running add ice cubes one at a time through hole in top of blender. Blend till desired consistency. Enjoy!
