Fig Milkshake was introduced by my best buddy who is also in Chennai with a busy life. We happened to catch up in Railway station when we both had gone to drop our parents. It was already 11PM but he insisted we have at least a juice somewhere. So, we went to a famous food joint for juices and milkshakes. He wanted only Fig combo of drinks and when asked about it, he shared the health benefits of figs. Then on, I make few drinks to bring fig into our lifestyle in a delicious way. Read about Health Benefits of Dried Figs.
