Figs Got Shaken Up

Sunday, October 14, 2012

I was given figs again. This time two different kinds, the black mission variety and some Kalamata (?) and I decided to "shake them up" with other fruits and unique flavors. Needless to say, the outcome is so delicious that it's worth sharing with you : )

Fruit & Spice Mylk Shake
(Serves 1 but you could split it with a friend : ) )
2 cups almond mylk / your choice of nut mylk 
1 peeled banana 
3 figs
handful of strawberries
seeds out of 1-2 pods cardamon
dash of vanilla
optional: 1 tbsp flax seed meal

Whirl it all up in a high-speed blender and enjoy the healing benefits of figs, cardamon and vanilla. Cardamon is extremely rich in the hard-to-get mineral, manganese and vanilla has antioxidant, anti-cancer and antibacterial qualities. I haven't tried it but many people even use it as a food preservative....a good-to-know fact. It's a spice with more than just a fabulous scent and aroma. Get a high quality. I know it can get very expensive but it's worth the price and only a pinch or so is used at a time usually so your batch will last a while.
Have a wonderful Sunday! : )
