Holiday Green Smoothie

Figgy Pudding holiday green smoothie recipe from the new Simple Green Smoothies book.

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?

  4. Evie Birch says:

    This green smoothie Looks delicious! I was surprised how well avocado works in smoothies. It gives it a really nice job! thanks for sharing….

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      We love avocado too! Not only does it make our recipes super creamy, but it’s packed with healthy fats!

  5. Lavinia says:

    The figs do you peel them? or blend them whole? I would like to try this new treat. I am a new 1 smoothie a day person. Got started to help my husband with health issue but found I felt better my self. I used to get heart burn allot and it is very rare that I get heart burn any more. I went with out smoothies nearly a week and quest what. Heart burn in the night. Got back to one smoothie a day. No heart burn. Something yum make me feel better and stops heart burn. Beginners luck is my go to smoothie when in a hurry. I am still working on trying them all.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Lavinia,

      YAY! So happy to hear your heartburn is under control! Isn’t that the worst, especially when it wakes you up at night!

      And great question! The skin of the fig is edible. As a result, you do not need to peel the fig before eating it or blending. Merely twist off the stem and eat the fig skin and all.

    I have recently been on the smoothly train…one a day, but just had the figgie pudding, what a delight yum. From Tasmania Australia

  7. tasha says:

    I only used 1 cup of figs and I still found it far, far too sweet. I’m going to try subbing an avocado for the banana next time and add more greens.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Tasha,

      That’s a great idea! The avocado will still add the creaminess we love, without the added sweetness of bananas! Make sure + reach back out after you try this recipe again!

      Cheers 🙂

  8. Verena says:

    If fresh figs are not available, can I use soaked dried figs instead?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Verena,

      I personally haven’t tried this recipe with dried figs, but it’s worth a try!! Soaking them before blending is the way to go!!

      Cheers 🙂

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Verena! I tried it by soaking dry figs for a couple of hour. The taste is god, but really sweet. Hope it helped you! 🙂
