Fig and Carob Milkshake


Carob powder adds chocolatey flavor, without any actual chocolate, to this delicious "milkshake" that's made with unsweetned plain yogurt and milk (in lieu of ice cream). Fresh figs add plenty of sweetness -- meaning you may or may not need to add honey or sugar, depending on your taste preference. While this may seem like a strange combination, it's similar in spirit to the famous date shakes that you can find in California.


1 plain yogurt
100 milliliters milk
1 teaspoon carob powder
2 teaspoons honey (or sugar)
6 figs (fresh, shelled)
