Kathryn says: Here’s a scenario: You’re at the grocery store, and figs are buy one, get one free. It’s a no-brainer – you put them in your cart and begin devouring them that day. But after about a week, you’ve only plowed through one carton, and things are becoming routine. Wash. Eat. Repeat. Clearly, you’ve exited the honeymoon stage. How do you bring back the magic? What can you do to spice things up?
You do the unthinkable. Chart new territory. Throw them in a milkshake.
1 cup of fat-free milk
2 tbs. sweetened coconut flakes
3 large figs, washed with stems removed
1. Put all ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend thoroughly, until frothy.
3. Pour into a cup and serve. (I recommend using a wide straw due to the coconut flakes.)
