Fig Pie Smoothie: Dessert Thickie

Fig Pie Dessert Smoothie: Thickie recipeThis is a rich, caramelised fig pie dessert smoothie.  If you can get hold of fresh figs, then use these instead of dried figs.  This will significantly reduce the calories but you may need to add some more dried fruit or healthy sweetener to it depending how sweet you like it.

This is the third in a series of dessert thickies, smoothies that taste like desserts and are made thick and filling with the use of oats.  This smoothie is a complete meal in a glass.  I love to have mine as a weekend treat either for breakfast or in the evening after my meal for my ‘dessert’.  Either way this will satisfy all your sweet cravings.

Figs have so much fibre that this will keep you going for hours.  Figs are also great for constipation.

Blend the ingredients in the following order: 

  1. Blend the dry ingredients and liquid first for a short time
  2. Blend the greens next. (If using)  for a short time
  3. Blend the fruit and the rest of the ingredients until smooth (or as smooth as your blender will allow. High speed blenders may need 2 minutes for a green thickie, less powerful blenders may need a lot more, sometimes 5-10 minutes)

More tips:

  • Blending this way allows the dry ingredients to be blended for longest, it means the greens will fit in your blender and your fruit gets less blending so it doesn’t become too hot.
  • Add more water if required to thin it out.
  • Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
  • If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending. 
  • You can also replace half of the liquids with ice.  Add the ice at the end. It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.


How much should I drink to replace a meal?

  • Only use a meal replacement if you’ve added the oats/quinoa.
  • This green thickie serves 2 so you should DRINK HALF OF THIS RECIPE.  But if you have higher calorie requirements you may need to drink more.


  • Serving Size: 550 ml/20 oz /1 pint
