Fresh Fig and Yogurt Snack

figs with yogurt and honey

This little recipe is proof that sometimes simple is best. All that’s needed are three very wholesome ingredients and an appetite. Oh, and it needs to be fig season, which happens here in the U.S. exactly twice a year: for the first few weeks of June and in the fall from about August to October. Take advantage when you see fresh, juicy fruit to make this easy fig recipe. They’re naturally sweet as well as nutritious. Two large figs deliver nearly 4 grams of fiber along with a bundle of minerals, which put a nice dent in your daily requirements. Top with a spoonful of yogurt and a drizzle of honey for a light breakfast or delicious between-meal pick-me-up.

Fresh Fig and Yogurt Snack

Fresh, flavorful, ripe figs, a spoonful of Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of honey is all that's required here. But if you happen to have chopped hazelnuts, sliced almonds, or favorite seeds on hand, scatter them over the top for a little crunchy finish.
