What to do when your parents send you a ginormous bag of dried figs? Well, I shared a few with a friend, ate some as a snack, and decided to use a good portion of them to make a smoothie. Figs have a great amount of natural sugar and add a different texture to a smoothie.
What To Do With Dried Figs? Dried Figs & Frozen Berries Smoothie
Ingredients for 2
8 ounces Greek yogurt
8 dried figs
1 cup frozen berries (I used a mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup crushed ice
1. Put all the ingredients into a blender. Puree until you get the consistency you desire.
2. Pour into glasses.
Confession: these paper straws are super cute, but they aren't incredibly useful. I ate my smoothie with a spoon ;) You can add more liquid and drink your smoothie through a straw. There's no need to add sugar unless you have a very big sweet tooth. Isn't the color gorgeous?
Any other ideas for using dried figs?
