directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the eggs and sugar together in a stand
mixer until the mixture is light. Add the figs and
oil and beat until well incorporated.

cinnamon, then stir in the almond meal. Add the
flour mixture to the wet ingredients alternately
with the Lifeway Lowfat Plain Kefir; beat until

Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray
- no need for paper liners. Fill the muffin cups
three-quarters of the way to the top. Bake about
30 minutes, or until the tops are brown and a
tester comes out clean. Let cool in the pan 2
minutes, then remove the muffins to a rack to
cool. If you prefer, the fig batter can be baked
in loaf pans or a bundt pan as a cake - increase
the baking time to 50-60 minutes.

Lemon Kefir Ice Cream

DESSERTS
Courtesy of chocolateandzucchini.com
ingredients:
directions:
1 and 2/3 cup Lifeway Lowfat Plain Kefir
Zest from a large organic lemon, micro
planed or very finely chopped (a Meyer
lemon would be just the thing)
1/4 cup lemon juice (the large lemon listed
above should yield that amount, but get a
second one just in case)
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp agave syrup (or the
sweetener of your choice -- maple syrup, rice
syrup, honey, or a mix of honey and sugar)
Good splash of limoncello
(or rum or cachaça) (optional)
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and
whisk until blended. Cover, refrigerate for an hour
until well chilled, and churn in your ice cream maker
according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve
with thin butter cookies, a handful of berries, and/or
candied violets. Makes about 1/2 liter (1/2 quart).
Don’t have an ice cream maker? You can still make
this recipe on a day when you’re home most of
the time. Prepare the mixture in the morning. Pour
it into a freezer-safe container and place in the
freezer. An hour later, remove the container from
the freezer, draw the sides in with a fork (the ice
cream will set from the sides in), stir vigorously, and
return to the freezer. Repeat every hour. The ice
cream will be ready by dinnertime.
