Fresh Fig and Date Shake
Martha Rose Shulman
Yield One serving
Many of us who frequent farmers’ markets this time of year bring home far more figs than we need. This thick, date-sweetened smoothie is a great way to get rid of the extras.
Featured in: Fruit Smoothies For Summer.
4 fresh ripe figs (about 4 ounces)
2 moist, plump Medjool dates (about 1 1/2 ounces)
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
4 ice cubes
A few fig slices for the glass
1. Place all of the ingredients except the sliced fig in the blender. Blend until frothy, about one minute. Pour into a glass, garnish with fig slices, and serve at once.
