Fig & Almond Butter Smoothie

Fig & Almond Butter Smoothie

Smoothies are my go to breakfast on weekdays, not only are the light enough to drink before work, but with the right ingredients, they can keep you full all morning long!  As a self-diagnosed obsessive discount shopper, I’m always perusing the aisles in the grocery store looking for a good deal or something new and exciting to add to my favorite recipes.  On a recent trip down the frozen aisle at Trader Joe’s I discovered frozen figs and couldn’t help but think these would be perfect in a smoothie.  While I generally go for the green smoothies for breakfast (if you can’t enough greens, you might as well drink them, right?), this smoothie combination is the perfect sweet treat on a hot day or a great reward after a hard workout- add in some protein powder and split it with your workout buddy!
