Fresh figs are usually available in the fall. You can find them in the produce section with the exotic fruits like dates and coconuts. Try one raw to get the flavor—they’re not as sweet as dried figs, and you may fall in love with them for autumn cooking. Paired with more familiar dates, this shake is an easy and delicious option for giving this less familiar fruit a fair chance.
