- Active Time 5m
- Total Time 5m
Makes 1 drink
- 4 large fresh figs (preferably Black Mission)
- 1/2 cup ice
- 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (regular, low-fat or non-fat)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tablespoon)
Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.
DESERT FIG SMOOTHIE: Omit the honey. Add 2 tablespoons tamarind syrup and 2 fresh, pitted dates before blending.
FIG AND APRICOT SMOOTHIE: Omit the honey. Add 2 tablespoons apricot jam and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon before blending.
GINGER FIG SMOOTHIE: Squeeze a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger in a garlic press to extract the juice. If the ginger is to large to fit your garlic press, cut it into smaller pieces and repeat the process. Add the ginger juice before blending.
LEMON FIG SMOOTHIE: Use the juice of 1 whole lemon. Use lemon yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt.
