While I was sweating it out at the gym this morning I started thinking about breakfast. Yes, this happens often. My mind is often occupied by thoughts of meals to come.
While Woody is off becoming a Tough Mudder, I decided to try something different. A blueberry fig smoothie. I bought some figs at Trader Joe’s last week and while we’ve been snacking on them through the week, I thought this might be an interesting combination.
- 1/3c 0% Greek yogurt
- 1/2c skim milk
- 1/2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2c frozen blueberries
- 3-4 figs – cut into small pieces
How to make it:
- Just throw everything into the blender and BLEND BABY BLEND!
So, because of the nature of the figs, there can be a texture to the smoothie. If you like a super smooth smoothie, this may not be for you, but I think you should try it anyway, cause it was YUM! Just keep the blender whirling a little longer.
I do think the flavors went well together. I also throw some banana in a smoothie because it’s good nutrition and a base flavor that really doesn’t affect the overall flavor much. The fig and blueberry were great together and neither one overpowered the other. Definitely making this one again!
