Easy to make healthy high fibre smoothie recipe, helping you to reach your 30g daily fibre target.
A delicious blackberry and cacao smoothie to help you boost your fibre intake. As adults, we need 30g of fibre a day and this smoothie is designed to help you take a step closer to achieving this daily high fibre target.
HOW MUCH FIBRE IS IN MY SMOOTHIE?
Here’s a break down of the fibre in the main ingredients in the blackberry and cacao smoothie.
80g of Blackberries contains 2.5g of fibre
30g of un-sulphured dried apricots contains 1.9g of fibre
20g of pumpkin seeds contains 1.2 g of fibre
1 medium banana contains 1.4g of fibre
So this smoothie alone has a minimum 7g of fibre in it! Which is a great start to your day!
We prefer to use un-sulphured apricots, the flavour is delicious and no chemicals have been added to them to turn them orange.
BLACKBERRY & CACAO FIBRE BOOSTING SMOOTHIE
1 medium banana
80g|1/2 cup of frozen blackberries
30g |5 un-sulphured apricots
20g |small handful pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon cacao powder
15g | 2cm chunk fresh ginger
250ml unsweetened plant-based milk
Add all the ingredients to the blender or blender cup and blend until smooth, pour into a glass and then we like to sprinkle over a few toppings to add a bit of a crunch, which helps get the digestive system moving.
Depending on the power of your blender or if you have time, we’d recommend soaking the pumpkins seeds in the plant-based milk for an hour or overnight, this also helps to activate the seeds, meaning they will be easier for your body to digest.
