Dried Figs & Vanilla Shake

Even the weather in Paris is between sunny,rainy and windy, we love to have a glass full of healthy shakes. We love dried fruits, needless to say we never stop ourselves munching them, i'll try atleast to feed my kids daily with dry fruits. But sometimes its quite a hard task for me to feed them, so i'll mix and match according to their mood. Dates and raisins, they just hate it to the core,obviously i'll grind and mask it in many of my bakes but thank god my kids just love dried figs.

Dried figs is full of goodness and its rich in iron,calcium,potassium,zinc,copper,phosphorus.Figs can be eaten fresh or dried and they are usually used in making jam. Figs have a laxative effect and contain many antioxidants. Somehow the dried figs are the most commercial product than the fresh ones,these fruits are rich in fiber than most of the fruits and vegetables.You can feed very well your kids with this incredible dried figs, if they dont like just make this kind of refreshing shake and am sure they will just love it.You can even serve this delicious shake for a summer breakfast to kick start a hectic hot day.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27.


6-7nos Dried figs
2cups Chilled milk
3scoops Vanilla icecream
Honey (as per need)

Soak the dried figs overnite in a warm water.

Next day, blend the soaked figs,chilled milk,vanilla icecream and honey as a thick shake.

Serve it immediately.
