Confession time , I was not into figs until recently ….
Figs are in season and hence the fig overload 🙂
Roasted figs, drizzled with honey and served with cinnamon ice cream – Heaven! Honestly , tell me , who wouldn’t fall in love with this combination.
I am sucker for quick and easy desserts and anything that calls for fruits. For some reason , the guilt of consuming sweets is tempered with the fact that it is loaded with healthy vitamins , antioxidants and fibre .
I am going to let the flavour explosion , speak for itself .
Go ahead and try this out , you can thank me later .
