This Fig Tahini Sundae is a great way to make use of the last of the seasonal figs.

Tahini may sound like a strange choice in a sundae, but it works really well in sweet as well as savoury dishes.

Sweetened tahini has a halva-like flavour, which pairs beautifully with the soft, juicy figs and rich, creamy coconut yogurt, whilst the roasted chopped pistachios add a nutty aroma, contrastingly crunchy texture and beautiful colour. 

This sundae is vegangluten-free and naturally sweetened, but it certainly doesn’t taste like it!

I personally like to make this sundae with coconut yogurt as I love the contrast of the slightly tart flavour of yogurt with the sweet figs, but you could also use ice cream. 

This sundae is the easiest thing to make, coming together in just 5 minutes! It’s great as a dessert or snack, but is also healthy enough to be the perfect candidate for a dessert-for-breakfast situation too – what better way to start the day?!
