Fig Milkshake | Dried Fig Smoothie | Smoothie Recipe

Fig Milkshake, a healthy and creamy milkshake made from the dried figs. This milkshake is one of our recent favorite drink, it tastes so good on its own and quite filling too. Actually this milkshake was inspired from the dates milkshake. When we were in bangalore, ST was quite fond of dates milkshake that was available in his office canteen, even he noticed about how it was prepared in the canteen and told me, but as i'm not a big fan of dates in drink, i never attempt to make at home.
Now coming to figs, whenever we go to costco, we have the habit of buying MORE. Some times i wonder that how the bag looks so small in the store now turned into huge sack!!! It's just me or anyone else have the same experience. That's how, the large bag of figs got into my pantry, after munching them for a while, i was really bored to eat it, that's when i remembered the dates milkshake and prepared the same way replacing dates with figs and it turned out so creamy and delicious. Guess this is the perfect & delicious way to finish the remaining figs!!!!
