Peanut and Fig Smoothie

Like a sophisticated peanut butter and jelly sandwich, this fig and nut butter smoothie is an easy, but gourmet drink that can be a delicious snack.

Peanut and Fig Smoothie

This smoothie has a sophisticated, grown-up PB and J flavor to it. I say sophisticated, because I decided figs are sophisticated.

Who knew peanut butter and figs went so well together? Now, I want to go out and but some Fig Newtons, spread peanut butter all over them, and shove them into my face as fast as I can. Maybe that wouldn’t be quite the same…

This is yet another one of those recipes that is so stupid easy, you probably don’t need a recipe, but it’s more of a flavor combo idea. Feel free to play around with the main for ingredients, though! I would say, the one you don’t want to swap out would be the fresh figs—they gotta be fresh!

But swap the honey for maple syrup or agave, for a vegan option. Swap the peanut butter for almond butter, or even Nutella for a chocolate-y option. Swap the almond milk for goat’s milk yogurt for a little tang (plus I’m obsessed with figs with goat’s milk yogurt).
