This high fibre breakfast smoothie is a delicious whole foods way to start your day. It contains 11g of fibre thanks to the oats and psyllium husks–over a third of your daily fibre needs.
(Wondering if psyllium husks are good for you? Check out my post all about the benefits of psyllium husks).
It’s easy to adapt this high fibre smoothie to your tastes! Add a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder for a chocolate smoothie or some cinnamon and nutmeg for a winter spice feel.
Increase the protein by adding protein powder, or add a dollop of healthy fats by mixing in some Greek yoghurt.
Benefits of a high fibre breakfast smoothie
I’ve talked a lot about the benefits of fibre, so I won’t repeat myself here. But starting your day with plenty of fibre can help in the following ways:
- Helps you feel full for longer: because fibre slows down the digestive process, it protects against sugar crashes and can help you get through the morning without elevenses!
- Helps boost you to your full daily fibre requirement: because we need to eat 25g+ of fibre every day, we need to make sure every meal is contributing!
- Fast and easy: a smoothie takes just a few minutes to throw together. Adapt to what you have on hand! Just make sure the base of your smoothie includes rolled oats and psyllium husks and you’ll know you’re getting a decent amount of fibre in your breakfast.
