Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

There are so many ways you can customize this fig smoothie.

From making it chocolate flavored, to making it high in protein.

Some of my favorite variations of this smoothie include:

  1. Fresh Fig Variation: Swap the dried figs for fresh figs. The smoothie won’t be as sweet or thicker, but it will taste just as good!
  2. Yogurt For Creaminess: Add 1/2 cup of yogurt for an ultra-creamy smoothie. It will not only add digestive benefits but also protein.
  3. Chocolate-Caramel Flavor: Add a tablespoon of cocoa powder for a chocolatey version with notes of caramel from the figs!
  4. High Protein Smoothie: Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder for 20-25g of extra protein.
  5. Smoothie Base Variations: You can swap the oat milk for either almond, coconut, or even soy milk.

Equipment For The Recipe:

Since I own many blenders, I test each recipe I develop using multiple different blenders.

Here is a list of compatible and non-compatible blenders for this specific recipe:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender x
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender
AMZChef Blender 1800 W
Wamife Blender

If you do own a blendJet blender, which is marked as not compatible, you can still make this smoothie.

You will just need to use 1/2 cup more liquid than my recipe states.

Recipe FAQs:

Does This Smoothie Help With Constipation?

I have personally seen great results in terms of constipation relief drinking this smoothie. I found that drinking it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, sends me to the toilet after about 40 minutes. Try it!

What Can I Use Instead Of Peanut Butter For a Nut-Free Smoothie?

For a nut-free fig smoothie, use 1/4 avocado, a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseeds, or sunflower seed butter instead.

Can I Drink This Smoothie Later After Blending?

Yes you can, but you will need to store it right. After blending, transfer it onto a portable water or shake bottle, and tightly close the lid. Refrigerate and consume it within 24 hours.
