Pour into a glass, and enjoy! :)

Add more nuts, or another fig, if you want to thicken it up.

Ok. I'm drinking this now. It's kind of thick so I added a bit of extra water to half along with a tsp. of raw agave syrup. The half I didn't add extra water to is now my chocolate pudding for dinner. Good stuff. I now have a recipe for chocolate pudding that doesn't have an aftertaste of tofu or texture of avocado. (I like my avocados in chunks). The figs make it taste alive.
