Place figs and water in bowl and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave until water begins to boil, about 1 minute. Let stand until figs are soft, about 5 minutes. Drain and let figs cool to room temperature, about 5 minutes.
Place figs, bananas, yogurt, and apple juice in blender and process until smooth, about 1 to 3 minutes.
