Fig / Anjeer Milk Shake #FoodieExtravaganza

Dried Figs or Fresh Figs are very commonly available almost everywhere and this is widely consumed in India and other countries. Figs, whether fresh or dried, are rich in powerful antioxidants.The fig trees can live up to 100 years, that why many people in India touch their head to this tree , so that, they too will have long and healthy life. 
Figs have a unique taste and texture. They are sweet and chewy. The smoothness of the fruit and the crunchiness of its seeds make a beautiful combination to eat. Dried figs are available throughout the year whereas fresh figs are available in summer.

Here the weather is so hot and sticky, this drink is perfect to cool your body. I,  have not added any extra sugar for sweetness. Wanted the natural taste and sweetness of the Figs. This is a diabetic friendly drink. Can add a tablespoon or more of caster sugar according to your taste.

November 1-7th is National Fig Week. Our Host Camilla M. Mann - Event for Foodie Extravaganza {Party},  asked us to share recipes that celebrate the mighty fig ( fresh or dried ).

  1. This sounds wonderful Sneha. I'll bet fig ice cream would be good too.

  2. Thanks for joining me this month, Sneha. I didn't realize that Fig and Anjeer are the same thing. I edited that in the permalinks HTML. I can't wait to try this.

  3. What a great sounding shake! I love the story about the fig tree!

  4. Like the idea of a fig milkshake!
