Figs with Yoghurt and Honey

I love fresh figs, but they are seasonal and hard to come by.  Shared previous Fig Salad with Walnuts and Mint.  So I'll surely pick up a pack whenever I could spot them in the supermarket ... even if it's pretty costly. I prefer to enjoy fresh figs in the freshest way like making salads or desserts instead of cooking the figs. 

Bought these healthy snacks ... Goji berry nuts mix but my big kids don't fancy them. My big boy even critically commented that "Mum, these weird looking nuts look like hamster food to me ..." 
So, obviously mum needs to find ways to include these snacks with something else ...

Large fresh figs, Goji berry
nut mix, yoghurt & honey
Figs with Yoghurt and Honey
Serves 2
Ingredients :
4 fresh figs
Yoghurt 140g (add more if you like)
1 tablespoon honey
1 packet Goji berry nuts mix

Method ... just few simple steps:
Wash the figs clean , remove the stems and cut into quarters or slices if you like.

Arrange them on a serving plate. Dollop spoonfuls of yoghurt and drizzle a tablespoon of honey.

Lastly, sprinkle the Goji berry nuts mix (or any dried nuts & dried berries of your preference).

Serve immediately.

Love the natural sweetness of fresh figs. With the addition of crunchy nuts, yoghurt and honey, tasted so delicious and satisfying, especially served as dessert after meal.  Love it more that this involves very little time and only just a few steps of preparation.

My big boy liked it so much that he has forgotten about the "hamster food" ... hee... hee!

Well, here's some of my previous cooking/baking recipes that used honey as one of the ingredients.  Give it a try if you like :

Pumpkin and Baby Spring mix salad

Enjoy! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Hi Sharon,
      At first I thought the texture would be sandy becos of the seeds but soft like peaches. Give it a try if you find them.

  8. Hi Karen,

    Figs are in season in Aus and you are right that they are so good with honey and yogurt.
