    yieldsMakes 1 Drink time---difficultyeasy

    If you can't find fresh figs in your market, you can always order them through the mail from Harry & David (800-547-3033). Ask for Black Mission figs. They're dark purple and blend up into a beautiful lavender-colored drink.

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    4 large fresh figs (preferably Black Mission)
    1/2 cup ice
    3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (regular, low-fat, or non-fat)
    2 tablespoons honey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tablespoon)

      METHOD

    Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.
