Last night I didn’t get around to posting, as I had purchased an entire box of fresh figs and was a little preoccupied.
This morning, the fig theme continued. I had some left-over “chai” tea chilled in the fridge (chai actually means tea in all other parts of the world, but thanks to Starbucks it’s a flavour here), and I decided to use it to make a rather fancy pants smoothie. I threw the chai, some figs and a frozen banana together in my lover (my Vitamix blender) and the result was out-of-this-world. I love drinking dessert in the morning. Here’s the smoothie photo sesh:
Chai Fig Smoothie
1 C cold strong chai tea
1/2 C water
1/2 frozen banana
5-6 ice cubes
5 fresh figs, scooped out
How’s that for fancy? Well, I’m off to a completely opposite event- Classroom Clean-Up. Ugh.
