As the fig season is coming to a near end, Iâ€™m trying to get the most of my favorite fruit while it lasts. Lately, mornings have involved a makeshift yogurt concoction, with figs, walnuts, and honey. Itâ€™s a light, fiber and protein-packed way to start the day.
Figs: are a mainstay in the Mediterranean diet and are exceptionally beneficial. They are an excellent source of heart-healthy minerals potassium, magnesium, and calcium, effectively reduce blood pressure, and help to improve your digestive system and regularity. Dried figs concentrate more nutrition in a single serving, but fresh figs are lighter and water-rich.
To keep this recipe vegan, make a coconut cream (yogurt), with or without chocolate.
