2 cupsFigs, roughly diced
1/2Lemon, juiced
1/4 cupHoney
2 tbspSliced Almonds
1 cupPlain Greek Yogurt
1 cupMilk, 3.25% (you can also use cream if you're looking to add calories)


  1. ​Add figs, lemon juice and honey to a small sauce pan over medium heat. Gently cook until the figs have broken down slightly, about 10 minutes. Set fig mixture in the refrigerator to cool.
  2. Once cooled, add fig mixture and remaining ingredients to a food processor and blend a little at a time until combined.
  3. Pour mixture into a glass baking dish of roughly 8 x 6 inches, so that the mixture is about 2 inches deep.
  4. Place dish in the freezer and give it a stir every hour or so for about 3 to 4 hours, until the mixture is almost solid. Scoop into a food processor and process until smooth. Serve.


  • Figs are a good source of fibre, which helps keep your digestive system working well and can help you manage your weight. Diets high in fibre are associated with a lower risk of colon cancer.
  • Figs are a good source of potassium, which can help lower blood pressure. Figs are also one of the only fruits that contain calcium, which is needed for strong bones.
  • Almonds contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and are an excellent source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that lowers overall inflammation. A quarter cup of almonds has half the vitamin E most people need in a day. Almonds are also rich in magnesium. Magnesium is a mineral needed for bone health that also helps to relax your blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure and improves the flow of oxygen and nutrients throughout your body.
  • Go nuts for nuts! A large population study showed when participants ate a handful of nuts 4 times per week they lowered their risk of heart disease by almost 40%.
