Tangy Orange and Fig Smoothie

The holidays this year were fun, busy, exciting, busy.... need I say more :) We had family and friends over almost every weekend in the last 2 months and the Christmas break was no exception. We had a falafel lunch on the 25th - I made parsley hummus, fresh falafel, and home-made pitas. The day before I made a gorgeous three fruit marmalade, and baked a beautiful and crumbly olive oil cake. Freshly squeezed juices and blended smoothie heaven - mmmmm - what more can one ask for at the end of a long, full, and exhausting week.

1 large orange, peeled, squeezed, pips removed
1 banana, peeled
8 dry figs
6 tbsp live yogurt
2 tsp agave syrup
large pinch cinnamon

  1. Place the banana, orange juice, figs, and yogurt in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth, pour in the agave syrup, and the cinnamon.
  3. Pulse a couple of time, pour into two glasses, and serve immediately.
This is a very soothing and comforting drink, sip slowly for maximum pleasure.
