I would like to try this smoothie. The ingredients are intriguing. One question - where would I find the black mission figs?
I do shop around, but must admit I have never heard of or seen them. Any input?
Could you substitute lemon or lime juice for the Balsamic Vinegar? (I'm one of the few people who don't care for Balsamic vinegar.)
I found the black mission figs in the bulk section of Good Earth (my local health food store). It depends on what area you are in.
Fabulous answer! Good Earth is near me. I will visit the bulk area and try this out. THANK YOU!
Tried it this morning--surprisingly good. The avocado makes it so rich and creamy, and I didn't taste the balsamic vinegar. I think it's a flavor that really compliments the figs, and doesn't stand out. And I feel so good about (finally!) eating some of my greens!
I found black mission figs in my regular grocery store alongside the California figs, the prunes, and the raisins.
I tried this today, and found it so thick it was not drinkable. I added an extra cup of apple juice and it was much better. Perhaps because my blender is a $40 Wal-Mart brand, not a Vita-Mix?
