Now bring us some figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer! We’re bringin’ the Figgy Pudding straight to you with our green smoothie take on this oh-so-sweet dessert! This holiday green smoothie recipe is one you’ll want to blend each time you find fresh figs at your local store. And if you can't find fresh figs – we know the season can fly quickly by – frozen figs can be used instead. (We recommend checking Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.)
Figs are rich in natural sugars, minerals including potassium, calcium, iron, and copper, and are good sources of vitamins A, E, and K. Figs also contain a proteolytic enzyme that is considered to be a digestive aid—dessert with nutritional benefits! What could be better?
This green smoothie recipe is from our book: Simple Green Smoothies: 100+ Tasty Recipes to Lose Weight, Gain Energy & Feel Great in Your Body! The book is now available, and you can order right here!
