According to Ayurveda, some fruits and milk together is an incompatible food combination. Consumption of such foods together can lead to digestion problems. Instead of coconut milk, you can use any vegan milk like soy milk or almond milk.

Personally I prefer almond milk and coconut milk in some fruit based smoothies and shakes. I have made the smoothie in coconut milk as I have added banana in the smoothie recipe.

Smoothies, Milkshakes and Fruit juices are healthy drinks and should be included in one’s diet. Making smoothies are also easier and takes less than 10 minutes.

Fresh figs and strawberries are in season. So in this smoothie, you can add strawberries instead of banana.

In this figs smoothie, I have not added any sweetener, but feel free to add a sweetener of your choice in the smoothie. Healthier options would be jaggery, maple syrup, honey, unrefined cane sugar, coconut sugar, palm jaggery and evaporated sugarcane juice.

How to make fresh figs smoothie

1. Rinse and then quarter 6 to 7 fresh figs. Take them in a blender or mixer jar.
