Ficus Carica, better known as Figs, is one of the most excellent yet underrated fruits in the fruit family. They are jam-packed with essential nutrients and health benefits, keeping your blood sugar under control.

Its chewy texture is similar to dates and tastes, just like raisins. The best thing about figs is that you can use it for many items, such as a butter paste, spread, jelly, syrup, and a natural sweetener, just to name a few.

One of my favorites is them being an additive to smoothies. Not only does it give a sweet appeal, but it also provides thickness and richness.

I will provide 4 delicious fig smoothie recipes that you can try out for yourself and get the great benefits of figs. At the same time, have a refreshing and delightful drink.

  1. Thank you so much for this highly informative article! I absolutely love smoothies, and am always looking to try new flavors. I will be the first to admit that I have never had a fig before (not even Fig Newtons), but I’m interested in trying one to see how it tastes-what better way to test it out than in smoothie form? I appreciate the fact that you laid out the recipe, step-by-step-I’m a visual learner. I will certainly try this out and let you know what I think! God bless you!

  2. Thank you so much for this article.I love figs but I have never used them in smoothies. I believe this is a great idea to replace any sugars. I will first try Banana Fig-nut Cinnamon Smoothie. I love both Cinnamon and nuts.

    Kind regards,

  3. Your smoothie recipes sound absolutely delicious, I can’t wait to try the banana, fig and mango one!
    Figs are so good for you so adding them into smoothies is a lovely idea, something I’ve never tried before or heard of.

    Your recipes are really easy to follow which I appreciate, is there any particular blender or smoothie maker you need to make these?

  4. Now that I think about it, I completely forgot that figs even existed! I’ve never been a big fan of smoothies and other sugary drinks because of the crazy amounts of added sugar that they usually have, but I’m really liking how your fig smoothie recipes are naturally sweetened! And the added health benefits of figs are another great bonus too!

    1. I did avoid smoothies too at one point, especially at restaurants and stores. But once I invested in a high powered blender and did research on natural substitutes for sugar, I started incorporating figs and dates into my fruit smoothies and haven’t looked back since.

  5. Thanks! I love figs, but haven’t tried them in a smoothie yet. That’s about time, given the fact that my mouth was watering when I read your recipes 🙂
    I have a green and a black fig tree in the garden. They do produce figs, but are too small for abundance yet. It’ll grow!

  6. I’m drooling reading your fig smoothie recipe! I absolutely love figs especially the dry ones due to their sweet flavour. I shall try this amazing recipe and let you know how I found it, but I am sure it will be yummy!

    Thank you for continue to post your unique recipes and ideas.

    Best wishes
