Thickalicious Blueberry-Orange-Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

This green smoothie is creamy, yummy and very filling-- it will definitely get you through the morning for five hours (until lunch)without the mid-morning craving for a piece of something starchy. I've been tweeting with a woman from Scotland who calls herself GreenThickies on Twitter and who has developed this delicious oatmeal-infused Green Smoothie that she, of course, calls a Green Thickie. I have been out of town for 2 weeks and away from my Vitamix (how I missed it!). Now I am home and was eager to give this drink a go... but I didn't have any of the lovely bits of fruit that she uses in her Green Thickie recipes, so did some innovation to come up with this recipe to use what I do have available... I'm loving it!

Put the following in your high speed blender (or blend in order in a regular blender):
*1 C. Filtered Water
*2 peeled Oranges (seedless or remove the seeds)
*1 C. frozen Blueberries
*1 C. Oatmeal (uncooked- soaked over night is good, if possible to remember to do that)
*2 T. Chia Seed or Flax Seed (or Chia Seed Gel that you can make yourself)
*3-6 Pitted Dates
*Handful of Romaine Lettuce

Whirl up until totally smoothie. Mmmmm. I think it is good to chew this smoothie a little instead of just bolting it down because it is pretty substantial and chewing ensures a better digestion process.  I threw in the dates because the combo reminds me of a lovely  muffin recipe I once had... you can omit them if you find this too sweet.

I don't have the exact nutritional breakdown but I'm guessing that this might be 300+ calories and contain around 6-8g of fat. Dairy-free, no refined sugars, Wheat-free. Check out for other information and recipes. I'm pretty certain I'll be trying out some more recipes for this sturdy smoothie on here again, so please check back!

  1. Cynthia,

    Many thanks for this post about my Green Thickies. After recovering from chronic health problems and losing 56 pounds with a green smoothie diet, I'm now passionate about helping other people to get healthy and reach their ideal weight. So thank you for spreading the word about Green Thickies.

    I invented Green Thickies after having a baby as I didn't have time to eat much and still wanted the health benefits of green smoothies. But I found they just weren't filling me up for long enough. This drink keeps me going all morning as it contains oats and seeds/nuts for a complete meal. I still lost my baby weight by drinking green thickies and have energy for my baby.

    Yes they are generally around 300 calories for a 16oz serving. This provides enough calories for a filling breakfast or a workout.

    Many thanks
