This was a simple but lovely treat on an extremely hot summer afternoon. I had been snacking away on my first figs of the season when I remembered the bag of frozen bananas in the freezer. Combined with whole milk, fresh figs, and a touch of local honey, I had a feeling that one of those bananas would turn into a unique and delicious shake. I was right.
