California Prune Breakfast Detox Smoothie by Jennifer Irvine

Oats, chia seeds, and California Prunes round out this Detox Smoothie for a hearty and nutritious breakfast. Recipe by Jennifer Irvine, acclaimed author and healthy food advocate, for the California Prune Board.


  • A handful of rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • A small handful of California Prunes (about 4)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Approx 20g live yogurt
  • Tablespoon of chia seeds
  • Approx 150 ml skimmed or low-fat milk
  • Approx 150 ml California Prune juice
  • 1 tsp fresh root ginger
  • A couple of lettuce leaves


First, place the oats in the blender and blend until you have a fine powder. Then add all the rest of the ingredients, excluding the milk and the prune juice.  Add enough milk to go half-way up the glass, and top with enough prune juice to cover the solid ingredients. Blend, adding more liquid to get your preferred consistency.
