Why you’ll love it:
I love a good breakfast smoothie and this one has it all. It’s a high fiber smoothie with plenty of protein, whole grains, healthy fats, and essential vitamins. Plus it tastes delish!
Fiber rich smoothies are easy to make! It’s all about choosing the right ingredients. This one has high-fiber ingredients like oats, chia seeds, raspberries, and strawberries. It’s fruity and filling at the same time.
One ounce of chia seeds packs in 10 grams of fiber!
This smoothie has plenty of texture, which I personally love! It’s like oatmeal and a smoothie had a baby. If you don’t like texture, you can easily omit it. Just omit the chia seeds and swap the rolled oats with quick oats.
This high fiber smoothie recipe is only six ingredients. Here’s what you need:
Frozen strawberries & raspberries – This smoothie tastes of raspberry and oatmeal. Be sure to use frozen berries so the texture is thick and frosty! One cup of raspberries boast 8 grams of fiber.
Banana – A natural thickener! Bananas are sweet and creamy, which makes them an ideal ingredient in smoothies. Be sure to use a ripe, yellow banana!
Rolled oats – Oats are a rich source of complex carbs and fiber, plus they’re filling! I love to add them to smoothies because they add a slight chew and oatey taste. If you don’t like oats, you can either leave them out or swap with quick oats.
Chia seeds – Another plant-based nutritional powerhouse! Chia seeds are a great source of antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential minerals.
Milk – You can use your favorite milk of choice for this recipe. Both regular or plant-based work great. I’ve used whole milk and almond milk with delicious results.
How to make a high fiber smoothie:
This fiber smoothie is super simple!
Combine ingredients: In the pitcher of a blender, combine the frozen raspberries, frozen strawberries, banana, chia seeds, oats, and milk.
Blend & adjust: Blend until creamy and smooth. At this point, the smoothie should be thick. Add a splash more milk to thin it out a smidge and blend for a few more seconds. I personally prefer my smoothies thick!
Serve: Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately. Smoothies are best enjoyed frosty and cold.
Ways to add fiber to smoothies:
The key to a fiber rich smoothie is utilizing high-fiber ingredients. Here’s a list of ingredients to try in your smoothies to add fiber! The amount of fiber is based on 100 grams.
- Pears – 3.1 grams. Pears are great in smoothies. They go well with bananas and oats too!
- Avocado – 6.7 grams. Avocado adds a rich, creamy element. Perfect for decadent chocolate smoothies.
- Raspberries – 6.5 grams. I love raspberries! Try pairing them with pineapple.
- Chickpeas – 7 grams. Say what? Yep, chickpeas are good in chocolate peanut butter smoothies. Use cooked, drained chickpeas.
- Oats – 10.1 grams. Oats go with any flavor smoothie.
- Chia seeds – 34.4 grams. Throw a tablespoon in any fruit smoothie for added texture and plant-based protein.
- Walnuts – 6.7 grams
- Use frozen berries! This is the frozen element that thickens it and gets it super cold.
- Adjust the consistency as desired. I always make my smoothies thick first, so they get nice and smooth, then I thin to the desired consistency. I prefer mine on the thicker side. Just add a splash of milk to thin it out some. Just remember, you can always add more, but you can’t take it out!
- Texture – This smoothie has plenty of texture, in a GOOD way! However, if you’re not a fan of texture, you can omit the chia seeds and swap the rolled oats with quick oats. I highly recommend the smoothie as-is though.
- Sweetener – If you like a sweeter smoothie, add a teaspoon or two of honey, maple syrup, or light agave.
- Milk – Any kind of milk works! Try cashew, oat, almond, or regular milk. I prefer regular milk in this one.
I don’t recommend storing this smoothie with fiber. The texture changes and not in a good way!
But if you have leftovers, I always recommend smoothie pops! Just pour the leftover smoothie into a popsicle mold, add popsicle sticks, and freeze overnight.
There are plenty of options to boost your smoothie with extra fiber! Try adding raspberries, oats, avocado, chia seeds, or pears. Oats are a great way to add fiber because they boast 10.6 grams of fiber per 100 grams and they go with any kind of smoothie.
The short answer is: it depends on what’s in it! This high fiber smoothie is packed with plant-based ingredients and whole foods, with no refined sugar. It’s a healthy smoothie option.
Raspberries are a rich source of fiber. One cup of raspberries boast 8 grams of fiber!
