Rinse in fresh water a few times and then quarter the fresh figs. Transfer them in a blender or mixer jar.
Peel, slice banana and add them to the blender jar. Instead of bananas, you can use strawberries or other berries. You can also skip bananas and add 6 to 7 figs more.
Add lite coconut milk or one having a thin or medium consistency.
Sprinkle ground cinnamon. Adding cinnamon is optional. You can also add a pinch of ground ginger, ground green cardamom powder, ground nutmeg or ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract. Or choose to skip the flavorings entirely.
Blend to a smooth and fine consistency. To thin the consistency, you can add some more lite coconut milk.
Pour Fig Smoothie in a glass and serve.
You can use dairy milk instead of coconut milk.
Use figs that are fresh, ripe and sweet.
If using dried figs, soak them in warm water until they soften. Later add the soaked figs, banana and coconut milk to a blender to make the banana fig smoothie.
This fig smoothie recipe can be doubled or tripled.
