Fantastic Fig

Ingredients

  • 1 fig - peeled
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 apple - chopped
  • 1 tsp maqui berry powder
  • 1 tbsp hempseed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Figs are such an ancient crop that fossilized remnants discovered by archaeologists date back all the way 5,000 B.C. High in fiber, magnesium, and calcium, figs are quite perishable, and should be refrigerated for optimal freshness. In addition to more fiber and antioxidants from an apple and banana, this skin-tastic smoothie has two superfoods: Maqui berry powder (antioxidants and blood-sugar balancing properties), and hemp seeds (fiber, protein, and Omega-3s). Stay light on your feet with this nutrient-dense drink!
