Vanilla Fig Smoothie

I recently bought some dried figs and have been snacking on them.  When I came across this smoothie recipe, it sounded like it would make a great sweet treat!

This smoothie was adapted from here:

Ingredients:

  • 4 figs (I used dried)
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp maca powder (Can be omitted)
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Vega) (Can be omitted)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of sea salt

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

 

If you don’t have vanilla protein powder, you can just use 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

If you don’t have maca powder, you can just omit this ingredient.

If you don’t have a high-speed blender, I recommend soaking the dates in warm water for about an hour first.

You can also add a handful of spinach or other greens and turn this into a green smoothie for some extra nutrition.

 

This smoothie would be great for breakfast since the protein will keep you full and all the other ingredients will give you plenty of energy!

 

Sorry, no picture yet!  When I added the spinach, it wasn’t the prettiest looking, though it was still tasty!  Next time I’ll take a picture before I add the spinach.
