Honey, Fig, and Date Smoothie

Author Notes: I like to experiment with smoothie ingredients, and when I saw that trader joe's stocks frozen figs, I was so excited. This recalls some of the fantastic smoothies I've had in the Middle East - the sweetness of honey and dates provides a really nice counterpoint to the nutty almond milk and tang/fruitiness of the yogurt and figs. I find it most satisfying as a thick smoothie, but feel free to play with proportions until it fits your preference!lazychef
