Originally created to pair with my Coconut Shrimp recipe, I've learned that this sauce is so versatile it really deserves its own page. Incredibly easy and delicious, it requires minimal effort and is ready in under 30 minutes!

Fun Health Facts

Apricots are a type of stone fruit. This means they have thin skin and a "stone", or seed, in the center. They're in season from early spring to early fall.

Apricots are highly nutritious and low in calories. They contain many essential vitamins and minerals and are high in antioxidants. They are believed to help prevent chronic illness and promote eye, skin and gut health.

Like most fruits, apricots are naturally high in water which makes them very hydrating. This can help regulate blood pressure, body temperature and joint health.

Apricot Dipping Sauce Ingredients Needed

  • 6 oz dried apricots (or 1 cup fresh)

  • Water

  • Honey (sub 1 oz apricots for Whole30)

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Ground ginger

  • Garlic powder

 Tips & Tricks

  • If you continue to cook down the apricot sauce you will make yourself a delicious jam. The thickness is completely up to you and depends on how long you cook it for!

  • I like my apricot sauce to be smooth, but some people prefer to have it on the chunkier side. The amount of time blended is what will affect this so make it however you like.

  • If you prefer to use fresh apricots for the sauce, use 1 cup instead of 6 ounces.
