Fig & Banana Smoothie

fig and banana smoothie recipe

 You may or may not know that I am currently in the throes of a new food obsession (they change periodically – the last one was with apples).  This time it is with the humble fig.  I’ve been buying a kilo of them at the market every couple of days and going through them by the time I get back to buy some more.  I find when I eat a hundred in one go that I get a sore tongue though so I’ve been finding some ways to use them in meals that are just as delicious.  This smoothie was so good I wished I had of made more.



10 figs, cut in half or quarters
1 ripe banana1/4 cup yogurt
1/2 cup water (or milk)


If you haven’t already then wash your figs.  Throw everything into a blender and process until smooth – about 30 seconds because the fig skins need to break up.



P.s I have a free book coming out soon with a bunch of new recipes for travelers.

    It really was! I know, fresh figs are so hard to find in New Zealand – and when you do they don’t taste of anything! I’m eating so many here to make up for it haha.
