Recipe: Fig and hazelnut smoothie

Fig and hazelnut smoothie

This fig and hazelnut smoothie tastes amazing and will convert even the most sceptical of your friends and family to the benefits of a smoothie.

The figs provide you with a good source of fibre and are rich in minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and copper and are a good source of vitamin A, E and K – antioxidants that contribute to good health and wellness.

While the hazelnuts are high in energy, rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids (good cholesterol), that help to prevent coronary artery disease. They also give this smoothie a sweet, nutty taste and a creamy texture.
