Apple Fig Smoothie

AppleFigSmoothie

 

It’s fig season and I could not be more delighted!  In addition to being simply divine figs are loaded with healthy nutrients including B6 vitamins and minerals such as copper, potassium and manganese. Figs are also an excellent source of dietary fiber making them a fabulous choice in weight management.

Personally I just love the taste and enjoy their brief season every year. This simple smoothie makes a great breakfast or a pick me up later in the day

Enjoy!

  1. Hi valerie; as a kid one of my favorite cookies was the fig nutan. I’m not sure how good this will taste, but I’m interested. Its almost enough to make me want to buy a blender. 🙂 I do agree the recipe is simple, and I like the fact that it makes enough for two so you can share. I also notice that it includes nuts and almond milk so it should also be high in protein. don’t know how the people at my gastric surgery support group will feel about it. thanks for sharing, max

    • You are most welcome Max! I loved fig nutons growing up and my girls still love them today. You’ve just inspired me to come up with a home made recipe for those! I do hope you’ll be able to enjoy this smoothie and hope your support group will approve 🙂 Best of luck with your recovery. I do think a blender is a fabulous investment 🙂

    The apple fig smoothie sounds very good. Breakfast is the most challenging meal in my home because of time. This recipe sounds delicious and nutritious, and quick to prepare.

  1. […] Figs are an excellent source of dietary fiber which make them a great choice for weight loss or weight management.  As I’ve shared before, fiber is my “secret weapon” when it comes to helping my clients loose weight.  Fiber rich foods help you feel full without eating huge quantities and keep you satisfied for a long time so you won’t go searching for a sugary snack soon after eating.  Fiber also helps with digestion and elimination keeping you felling your best.  This makes them a fabulous addition to your morning smoothie!
