Hi Fiber Healthy drink recipes for blenders

So why choose a hi-fiber smoothie?

Having a diet that contains plenty of soluble fiber will not only prevent constipation, it will help prevent the risk of various health problems such as cancer and heart disease.

Hi fibre smoothies are also good for weight control as fiber naturally slows down the digestive system, keeping you fuller for longer.

These healthy blender fruit drinks are excellent natural laxatives and contain a high source of minerals such as iron and potassium that will balance the good bacteria in your gut, allowing your digestive system to run smoothly.

Very Berry Hi Fiber Smoothie

Using a cupful of frozen berries and ice cubes makes this smoothie particularly cold and thick, if you would prefer a thinner and slightly warmer smoothie, just add a little more milk and omit the ice cubes.

You will need:

  • 1 cup frozen berries or 1/2 cup frozen berries and 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup live yogurt (probiotic yogurt)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon flax seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon wheat meal or fine oat bran

Method:

This healthy drink recipe makes two portions.

Combine the prunes, apple and water into a small to medium sized saucepan.

Bring the water and fruit to a boil and immediately reduce the heat to low, covering and allowing it to simmer until the fruit is soft. This should take approximately 10 minutes; the apple should still hold its shape.

After, set the apple aside to cool and then blend the prunes together with the apple and remaining ingredients, processing until the mixture is smooth and delightfully frothy.
