The Chocolate Fig Smoothie was sort of an accident.
I was in the mood for something sweet. I couldn’t figure out if it was one of my usual chocolate cravings, or something else.
After eyeing up the farmers’ market fresh figs on my kitchen counter, I wondered. I had never paired chocolate with fig, at least not in a smoothie. I figured it couldn’t be bad considering figs are sweet, nutritious, and not very overpowering. They also have a lovely little texture that could add to the smoothness of the drink.
So I did it. This is my accidental ultimate chocolate fig smoothie. It contains simple ingredients yet it’s rich and chocolatey. It’s also healthy and you’d never know it. I like to drink it after a great workout to replenish and recover. It’s simply delicious. Hope you like it.
