Diet comment

Apricots and oranges are the basic ingredients of this recipe, in addition to yogurt. The fruits contribute their sweetness, based on their content of simple sugars, so it is not necessary to sweeten it. In addition, they are rich in vitamins such as beta-carotene or pro- vitamin A , folates, vitamin C and minerals such as potassium , organic acids (citric acid, among others, which enhances the action of vitamins C) and fiber, which improves intestinal transit.

Beta-carotene and vitamin C are two substances with a powerful antioxidant action. Yogurt is a dairy derivative rich in protein , calcium , B vitamins, fat soluble A and D and calcium, and its fat content is low. It also contains lactobacilli, beneficial bacteria also present in our intestinal flora. Yogurt and other fermented milks are known to help balance the flora in our intestines and enhance our defense system.
