Apricot is a common fruit in the North region of Brazil that is generally used to be consumed in natura, in juices and other recipes such as mousses, ice cream, jelly, salad or compote, for example. There are 4 different types of this fruit, but the benefits are very similar.

This fruit is rich in fiber and beta-carotene, which has antioxidant action that fights premature aging, prevents cancer, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease and inflammatory diseases.

Beta-carotene is a precursor of vitamin A, which is essential in maintaining eye health and mucosal integrity, and is also useful for strengthening the immune system and promoting bone growth.

how to consume

The apricot fruit can be consumed when ripe, usually in the autumn season, and can be used to prepare juices or jams, for example.

  • Apricot Juice Recipe: To prepare the juice, mix the apricot pulp in a blender with 500 ml of water and then sweeten it with sugar or honey, if necessary.
  • Apricot Jam Recipe: Cut the pulp into small pieces and add 1 cup of sugar and bring to a low heat, stirring constantly. You usually don’t need to add water, but if you find it sticking to the pan, add small amounts. Gradually the texture of the compote forms and the jam is ready in about 20 minutes. Then put it in a well-washed glass container and keep it in the fridge.

In addition, it is also possible to prepare other sweet recipes with apricot and fruit smoothie, for example.
