How To Make Fresh Fig Milkshake?
Fresh fig milkshake is a delicious way to enjoy the seasonal fresh figs that appear in the markets for a little time. I have not had the fortune to spot fresh figs in Singapore. This fresh fig milkshake happened way back last year when i got a batch of sweet, luscious and floral figs back in Baroda. Fresh figs are a good source of potassium, iron, magnesium and copper along with a host of antioxidants including Vitamin A. While dried figs are a sweet treat any time of the year, fresh figs will change your fig eating experience totally. They are juicy and sweet with the slight but tangible crunch of those tiny seeds. A word of caution, though. Figs are high in oxalates and when eaten in excess, they act as a good laxative. So please exercise portion control!
Coming back to this fresh fig milkshake, i have peeled the figs here. In my previous experience of making fresh fig milkshake, i have found that leaving the peel on imparts a bitterness to the fresh fig milkshake. To peel a fresh fig, cut off the top of a fresh fig and make cross slit across the top. Using a sharp knife, peel down the edges and discard the peel. Then proceed to use the fig to make this healthy fresh fig milkshake.
