Fresh Fig Orange Smoothie

figsBy Cathe Olson


Figs are a good source of iron and the vitamin C from the orange helps it to be absorbed. The yogurt adds protein, and the calcium makes this a nutritious, low-carb snack.


1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup yogurt

1 orange, peeled and broken into pieces

5 fresh figs, cut in half

1/2 cup ice cubes


Place ingredients in the blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth.


Yield: 1 to 2 servings


Note: Those avoiding dairy can use soy yogurt or silken tofu instead of dairy yogurt.


Variation: Try one frozen banana instead of the ice cubes. Also, try it with vanilla yogurt.
