Stage 4 + 5

Fresh or dried figs work well for this snack.

  • 2 whole fresh figs (dried figs can be used also)
  • 8 oz marscapone
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

For the marscapone dip, stir the nutmeg and syrup into the marscapone until it is soft and creamy. Remove stems from fresh figs and cut in eighths for dipping. One fig and one tablespoon of dip is a serving.

The marscapone dip can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Figs are a very good source of potassium. They are also a great source of fiber.
