This is a light and refreshing smoothie for a hot summer day! I rarely buy fresh figs but I wanted t give them a try. They definitely have a different taste than dried figs. I think they go great in smoothies because they help give it a light and creamy texture and are loaded with healthy vitamins and minerals.
Strawberry and fresh fig smoothie
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
4 fresh figs
1″ chunk fresh ginger
squeeze of fresh lemon juice (about 1 teaspoon)
1 cup coconut water
* I topped with chopped strawberries, chopped avocados, a slice of a fig, chia seeds, and lemon zest.
