Thirsty Thursday: Fig Newton Smoothie

When I was younger, I loved the double and triple chocolate desserts and hated fruit desserts.  But, the lone exception was fig newtons, which I didn’t really consider dessert anyway.  I haven’t had fig newtons in awhile and had actually been craving them.  I toyed with the idea of making homemade ones, but didn’t get around to it, and I didn’t want to buy an entire package because, well I didn’t need to have that temptation around.  I found a recipe for a honey fig yogurt smoothie when I was browsing instagram and thought I would give it a try.  I modified it a bit, and when I took my first sip, my fig newton craving disappeared!  It tasted exactly like one in smoothie form.  If you like fig newtons, I highly suggest you give this smoothie a try!  

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/2 Cup Water

1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt

4 Dried Figs, stems removed and cut in half

1/2 Frozen Banana

1 Date, pitted

1 TSP Fresh Lemon Juice

It was a bit sweet, but next time I am going to only put a drizzle of honey in the blender.
