Fig season is finally here which means that you can get fresh figs at nearly any farmers market. This juicy and sweet fruit is very underrated even though it’s super healthy and packed with valuable nutrients. Here are a few great ways to eat figs more often this season.
People who don’t like eating figs can also reap their benefits by mixing them into drinks like smoothies and milkshakes. Adding just six to seven fresh figs to your smoothies is a great way to make this beverage healthier, especially since they’re very sweet and can be used as a natural sweetener.
Cheese and figs are yet another surprising salty-sweet food combination that is super tasty and enjoyable. Figs go great with a variety of cheeses like brie, goat cheese, gorgonzola, or blue cheese.
Meat and figs make for a surprisingly delicious combination, which is not at all new information. Serving figs with meat will add a whole new dimension to these dishes and it’ll make them more nutritious.
Another easy way to use up all those figs from your garden is to add them to your salads and make them more rich and flavorful.
