Healthy Muesli Smoothie Recipe: Healthy Hair

Healthy Muesli Smoothie Recipe For Healthy Hair

This is a great healthy muesli recipe.  It is a bowl of cereal in a glass with all your added extra ingredients for a healthy balanced meal.

It doesn’t seem so strange to add oats to your smoothies but muesli is not something we are used to adding to a drink.  Muesli gives this smoothie a rich toasted taste.  With a first taste of sesame, followed by the sharpness of romaine lettuce, you are left with a pleasant sweet lingering taste from this green thickie.

Muesli, invented by a Swedish doctor was popular in the 1960s as it contained all aspects of a healthy meal, fruits, fibre, protein and calcium. Go one step further and add fresh fruit and greens to it for a powerful complete meal breakfast.  Health benefits of muesli are that the rich source of protein can help in strengthening the bone and improving the health of the hair.

In the UK, we don’t have much choice with our romaine lettuces.  They often taste very bitter and are all exactly the same.  So try this with romaine lettuce if you can find a palatable one, but if you can’t feel free to add some greens that aren’t so overpowering such as spinach.

  • Author: Katherine Kyle
  • Prep Time: 2 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Servings 1x
  • Category: Green Thickie
  • Method: Blender
  • Cuisine: Drink


  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Dairy free milk (like this)
  • 1 Cup mangoes
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Cup muesli (like this)
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds (like this)
  • ½ Cup dates (or any other dried fruit) (like this)
  • 1 Cup romaine lettuce OR if you run out of fresh greens, add 2 scoops of Amazing Green Powder for an extra healthy green boost. (like this)


Blend the ingredients in the following order:

  1. Blend the dry ingredients and liquid first for a short time
  2. Blend the greens next for a short time (if using)
  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.

  1. I like your fantastic web site. Just what I was searching for!
    Best regards,

  2. Katherine,
    I am so inspired by your recipes and going to take up the 7 day challenge. I am not sure if I can find museli in our local grocery store, so can you please provide museli recipe.


  3. Hi! I love your site and the recipes! But one thing about the green muesli page: the inventor of muesli was Swiss, not Swedish.
    Not a big deal, but I just thought to tell you ;)

    Have a nice day!
