Fig Smoothie

When it's hot, I don't feel like eating a big breakfast. And it's been so hot and humid, still. It's the middle of September, where's the cool fall weather? On days like this, a simple, fast and easy breakfast for me is a yogurt smoothie. I usually keep a stock of store-bought packaged berries in the freezer because they make great smoothies, but I was all out. So I went the fresh fruit route this time with what's available now. Fresh fig smoothie with a touch of honey. Just what I need in the morning. And coffee.

The key to any fruit smoothie is to always add a banana. It thickens and sweetens and adds a nice dimension without overpowering the other flavors.
