I LOVE FIGS! I can eat them all the time which is why I am saddened to see our fig tree slowly giving us the last of its fruit. During the height of harvest, we froze quite a few bags of figs. These frozen gems when thawed will be used for shakes, until then I am using the last remaining fresh ones in other ways as below. This is a quick and simple dessert to enjoy.
Traditional recipes call for mascarpone cheese or ricotta. We didn’t care for the taste of ricotta and the mascarpone was sinfully smooth and creamy.
However, my favorite is the yogurt substitute — you just can’t go wrong in the calories and fats saved!
What you’ll need:
- 4 ripe but firm medium to large Figs
- 1/4 cup of Chobani Greek Yogurt, Vanilla Non-Fat
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- Optional – Chocolate gratings
Carefully slice an X about 3/4 of the way through each fig.
Place one drip of honey within the opening and broil for two to five minutes or until they have opened up. Meanwhile mix yogurt and honey together until integrated.
Remove figs from oven.
Transfer figs to plate and spoon about 1 tbsp of yogurt/honey mixture into each “flower”.
That’s awesome! I really need to find some figs around here. (Wisconsin). Living in Texas most of my life, I had figs in the backyard as a kid. I only ate them fresh off the tree.
I’ve never had them like this. I would really love trying them baked like that. I’ve definitely never heard of making shakes with figs, but I’d love to try it!

This sounds absolutely delicious! the problem with figs though, is that they sell them in such large boxes. I can’t finish them that fast.

I just discovered figs and honey this year! I could eat them everyday!!
The simplicity of this says it all…let’s the flavours shine through!
