Fig Smoothie with Cinnamon
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Breakfast in a glass; the ideal get-you-going, easy food to start the day. Per serving (a regular blender should hold the amount for 2 servings at a time)
Recipe type: Drinks
Ingredients
  • 1 large or two smaller, ripe figs
  • 200ml orange juice (or apple if you prefer)
  • 3 dessertspoons porridge oats
  • 3 rounded dessertspoons Greek, or similarly thick, plain yoghurt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • three ice cubes
Method
  1. Wash and pat dry the figs and then chop roughly. Reserve a little to top the smoothie.
  2. Place all ingredients in an electric blender / liquidiser. If using ice cubes, ensure you start blending on the ‘ice cube’ setting. Blend thoroughly moving through settings to mouli and then milkshake setting, if your machine has those. If not, perhaps omit the ice cubes (note they may damage a plastic bowl blender) and add a little water instead to thin the smoothie, and add an ice cube whole at the end when serving, especially if having this in summer months.
  3. To serve, top with a teaspoon of the yoghurt, some more ground cinnamon and chopped fig.
