Chocolate Green Thickie

This is the recipe that inspired me to make this thickie. I know how good broccoli and kale are for you, but do find it difficult to eat them regularly. I find the best way for me is in a green smoothie/thickie.
Green thickies are a great way to feel full and get lots of nutrition in one go. Also ideal on the go if taken in a flask/drinks container like I sometimes do. See Green Thickies for more information. I usually base my thickies on the basic green thickie recipe guide on this page. But today I took a smoothie recipe and adapted it into a thickie.

2 cups rice milk
1/4 cup walnuts (topped up with water in the 1/4 cup measure and left to soak for about 1 hour)
1/2 cup frozen red grapes
1 cup broccoli frozen
1 cup kale
1/2 frozen banana
1 banana
1 tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 cup oats
2 dates
splash vanilla extract

This made enough to fill 2 1/2 large mugs. I had 1 1/2 for breakfast and the other mugful for lunch.

Blend the walnuts/water and rice milk first and then the rest of the ingredients one at a time until all blended. This is what I did, but please visit Green Thickies for more information and recipes. This makes 2 servings.

If you wanted to serve this to someone that didn't eat vegetables as a hidden vegetable drink I would add a few more dates to sweeten and another 1/2 frozen banana and serve it as a chocolate milk shake! You could also use a creamier milk such as hemp or sweetened soya milk
