Healthy Breakfast Smoothie: 6 Essential ingredients in a Green Thickie
Imagine being able to get everything you need in one healthy meal in a drink. The great news is not only can you get all your nutrients in this healthy breakfast smoothie but you can make it yourself very easily so you know exactly what is in it. Green Thickies are made from wholesome healthy foods. There are so many benefits to drinking a glass of green thickie in the morning. A green thickie is made from the following elements which make it a complete meal in a glass. Each green thickie includes:
- Water or dairy free milk (Like this). Avoid having to make a separate drink. Get hydrated and gain energy from food at the same time.
- Fruit: Tastes sweet, provides essential nutrients and fills you up.
- Leafy Greens: Great for energy and power packed with nutritious goodness. Essential for good health. You could also use a nutritious green powder (Like this)
- Filler such as Oats (like this)or other healthy grains: Filling carbs to keep you going until your next meal without snacking. Read more about how to add Oats or Quinoa to smoothies. If you can’t tolerate grains – I have 20 different fillers you can use to make your smoothies into meal replacement shakes to suit all special diets.
- Seeds or nuts: Great for omegas 3, 6 and a range of other nutrients. A good protein source.
- Healthy Sweeteners: Use either dried fruit such as dates or raisins, coconut, or other healthy sweeteners to make the green thickie extremely delicious. You can also make your own Date Syrup which is easier to blend. Or buy Date Syrup here.
There can of course be other ingredients that will be added to green thickies to enhance the taste or increase particular health benefits of the ingredients. Herbs or spices such as vanilla, mint or carob. Or any other ingredients such as yoghurt or vitamins.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
