Figs + Greens Smoothie

Fig Green Smoothie

I absolutely adore figs. I gobble down as many fresh figs as I can during fig season, and buy dried and/or frozen figs (thank you Trader Joes!) during the rest of the year. 

Ingredients

  • Frozen figs
  • Fresh figs
  • Frozen pineapple
  • Frozen bananas
  • 3 Medjool dates
  • Baby gems lettuce
  • Kale
  • Spinach 

Directions

  1. When making a green smoothie always blend the greens first, separately from the fruit ingredients. Doing this will avoid over oxidation of the fruits, and keep the smoothie from turning brown!
  2. Add the fruit ingredients to the blender. I always use a vitamix!
  3. Top with juicy fresh figs and enjoy!
