Christina says that this is “a recipe for the wild souls who live creatively, curiously and sweetly!” This is a beautiful milkshake: sweet, creamy, and nourishing in every way. Anise is a naturally sweet spice with a similar taste to licorice. It is uplifting to the senses and also helps improve digestion.

  • 5 fresh figs peeled
  • 3 tsp honey or any sweetener of choice
