Thick, and that sticky texture of figs, turn this smoothie into a yum-yum smoothie for those who like figs a lot or want to rid their fridge of this perishable fruit fast.

We have an enormous fig tree in our yard and this recipe gives me a great way to use its fruit and all the frozen bananas we accumulate. So simple and the figs really make the smoothie creamy. My husband even loved it and he's not a fig fan. I'm going to try to freeze some of our figs so we can make this smoothie all year. Read More

Actually I give 3 5 stars. I don t know maybe it were my figs or orange juice but this smoothie was very very sweet. This is the reason we didn t enjoyed it so much. Great idea and figs go great with orange but the sweeteness really overwhelmed here. Read More

Loved this! I had an abundance of figs this summer and froze them in zip lock bags. I was looking for a recipe that would utilize them and this is it! I used frozen figs and a fresh banana and non fat milk. I also made it again and added a serving of fat free greek vanilla yogurt, it was yummy and made it thicker, more like a shake. Thanks, this is a great way to use up my figs a few at a time and help me in my pre-holiday dieting! Read More

This is a great recipe! Based on previous reviews ingredients I had at home and the fact that my figs weren't particularly sweet I used 1 frozen banana instead of 2 (I don't like smoothies with too much banana flavor) 6 figs 3/4 cup almond milk 3/4 cup orange juice 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt and 1/4 cup of ice cubes (to add an extra frozen element because I didn't use the 2 frozen bananas). It was great! It makes a great summer morning treat and was a hit with my kids who didn't like fresh figs before this. Read More

Surprisingly delicious, considering I do not like to eat raw figs. This smoothie tastes like it has berries in it. I really like it, and highly recommend it. Thanks Sam! Read More

Fabulous! I used some very ripe bananas unsweetened soy milk and high pulp orange juice and it came out wonderfully thick and had just the right level of sweetness. Read More

This smoothie gets points for being quick easy nutritious and delicious! My family really enjoyed it. I made it dairy-free by using almond milk (son has a sensitivity). Read More

This was actually REALLY good! My ONLY complaint is not enough fig. I did 8 decent sized figs and still did not get much flavor from them. still tasted super good though (mainly of banana). Thanks! Read More

This was very good - I cut it down to one serving using two figs. I didn't have orange juice on hand but it would be perfect with this so I did have to add a bit of honey for sweetness. I also added about 1/4 cup of non fat yogurt. Very tasty! Thanks Sam! Read More
