Dried apricots are a food we’re so used to eating the way they’re purchased, that it’s easy to overlook their use in an easy-to-make recipe. This apricot dip is simple, sweet and delicious. I’ve included maple syrup and a touch of lemon juice to add some depth to the flavor.


Mashed Maple and Apricot Dip Recipe


  • 1 cup dried apricot
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice


  1. Boil apricots for about 10 minutes to soften. Let cool before blending in Magic Bullet.
  2. Add cooled apricots, maple syrup and lemon juice to Magic Bullet and blend.


Use it as a dip with crackers, or spread it on some toast for a larger snack!
