Fig Ice Cream

This year I discovered for the first time in my life how full of fruits and colors the month of august can be. Especially in southern countries. I wasn’t even aware, even though I am a big fan of all sorts of fruit, that peaches can still be found end of august. This post is not about how delicious peaches are, but about how heavenly figs can be. Coming from a country where figs are eaten only during the cold season as a dry exotic fruit, I was really enthusiastic when I discovered them growing on trees during our September holiday in Croatia and Bosnia some years ago. Since then, we use to return to those regions not only because we like the sea, but also because figs are something I crave for during the whole year. Of course, I can always find them here in shops too, but this is not comparable to the real fresh ones !raw vegan fig ice creamThe taste of a perfectly ripe fig is heavenly. With its pink and purple hues and a luscious pink heart inside, this delicate fruit has lots of nutritious value. Due to our passion for figs unlike any other fruits, we ate it this year in all possible ways: shakes, ice creams, cakes…I must admit that my favorite way of eating these juicy and plush looking fruits is to eat them simply fresh. Paradisiacal fruits at its maximum!

Here is what we enjoyed during the warmest moments of the day: an easy fig ice cream which I have to wait for until next year!

  2. Excelenta idee, Natalia. Chiar astazi am mancat smochine crude, dar din acelea cu coaja verde…daca vedeam postarea ta, nu le mancam pe toate.🙂 O sa incerc reteta!🙂

  3. Sorry Nat, I can see your mouth water, but I’m having them quite fresh, big and delicious at the moment! Not only here in Greece, but also back in Macedonia. They are so sweet that I can have only two-three at a time. I’m totally with you in this fruit passion.

  4. Da, si eu am mincat smochine proaspete si sunt delicioase. Nici nu m-am gindit ca se poate face inghetata din ele si ce culoare superba are !

  5. I can completely understand you Nat since I am also big fan of fresh figs🙂 Actually, I have one fig three in the backyard of my house and it is interesting how it survived Serbian climate. Thanks for sharing this simple but grate recipe!

  6. O, Natalia, ce inghetata pofticioasa! Am vazut ca sunt si la noi smochine proaspete. Cred ca o sa incerc si eu sa fac o inghetata! Multumesc de idee🙂
