Fig and Date Based Smoothie Bowl

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

A little Middle Eastern twist on a smoothie bowl! Figs and dates are the two most popular fruits in Syria that I grew up enjoying every summer I visited my family. I had both in my fridge today and was in the mood to make something sweet for lunch. So, I made this delicious smoothie bowl that made me feel as though I was eating it on my grandma's balcony over looking the terraces of olive trees. Let me show you how to make it.

Yields: 1

Prep time: 2 minutes

Total time: 5 minutes

This recipe is gluten free and vegetarian.




1. ½ cup of almond milk

2. 1 frozen banana cut into smaller rounds

3. 5-6 figs cut in halves

4. 1 date

5. ½ cup of frozen blueberries

6. 4 TBSPS of plain Greek yogurt


7. Pumpkin seeds

8. Chia seeds

9. Blueberries

10. 2-3 figs cut in halves



1. Blend ingredients 1-6. Use a tamper to mash all the ingredients together properly. You want a thick consistency.

2. Next, grab a small bowl and pour the smoothie into the bowl.

3. Add your toppings, 7-10.

4. Enjoy!
