You are going to love this high fiber smoothie! As I get older, I find that my body needs more fiber to work properly. It’s one of those things that I’m starting to get used to, like gray hair and laugh lines. I’ve just adjusted my routine a little bit to compensate for the changes my body is going through.
High Fiber Smoothie with Chia Seeds
This avocado pineapple smoothie with chia seeds is one tasty change I’ve made to my morning routine. I received compensation from Bayer Consumer Health, makers of MiraLAX® to write this post. MiraLAX® is a laxative used to treat occasional constipation. All opinions are entirely my own. #ReliefMadeEasy #CollectiveBias
The more fiber you have in your diet, the more regular you’ll be. There are a lot of different ways to add fiber to your diet including things like prunes, black beans, and split peas. Since I like starting my morning with something that’s high in fiber, I decided to create this high fiber smoothie recipe. I love the taste. And, I love that it takes only a few minutes to make in the morning. I don’t have a lot of time in the morning to make breakfast. So, I want something I can have ready in only a few minutes.
What can I add to my smoothie for fiber?
Did you know that avocado, pineapple and chia seeds are all high in fiber? Avocado has 6.7 grams (raw) per half and pineapple has 2.3 grams per cup. When you add a tablespoon of chia seeds (5.5 grams of fiber) you have an amazingly high fiber smoothie that is absolutely delicious.
What vegetable is highest in fiber?
Usually, the darker the vegetable, the higher in fiber content. So, carrots, beets, and broccoli are all high in fiber. And, collard greens, Swiss chard, and artichokes are also very high in fiber. You can always modify this high fiber smoothie with a few extra servings of vegetables if you want to. I’d probably start with shredded carrots. Here are some more high fiber foods you can eat. You may want to try my high fiber overnight oatmeal recipe.
How can I add more fiber to my diet?
If you want to add more fiber to your diet, eat more whole grains. Include more vegetables with your meals and eat them before you eat the rest of your meal. Whole grain popcorn is a great snack if you want something that’s high in fiber.
Of course, there are times I need more than this smoothie recipe to get relief. When I suffer from occasional constipation, I turn to MiraLAX® because it provides dependable, gentle relief and works with my body’s natural processes. It’s different from other laxatives because it works with the water in your body to hydrate, soften, and ease, unblocking your system naturally. Save on any MiraLAX® product with this coupon.
The last time I was at Rite Aid, I noticed that they had MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax which I hadn’t seen before. I normally buy a bottle of MiraLAX® to keep on hand. The MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax are super handy to take when I’m traveling or away from home.
You can easily mix one dose of MiraLAX® with this high fiber smoothie if you need to. Or, you can add it to your juice or water if you prefer.
