Banana Raspberry High Fiber Smoothie
Blend your way to improved health with this high-fiber smoothie recipe by Dr. Jinan Banna. This recipe is definitely a one to try, as it gives you a whopping total of 23.9 grams of fiber and 25 grams of protein.
What makes this recipe so high in fiber? The banana and dates are a good start, but the real fiber powerhouses here are hemp protein and raspberries. If you don’t have all of these ingredients on hand, don’t worry – any one of them will up the fiber content of your drink.
Chocolate Peanut Butter High Fiber Smoothie
This recipe is a great option if you’re looking for a chocolate and peanut butter fix.
The smoothie gets its fiber from a surprising ingredient: frozen cauliflower. Before you toss the idea, give it a try. You will not be disappointed. Cauliflower is a good source of fiber and other nutrients. It’s also low in calories and has a neutral taste, making it a perfect ingredient.
The chocolate and peanut butter take care of the taste. Satisfy your sweet tooth and get your fiber all in one glass.

Vegan Chocolate Prune Smoothie
Love chocolate? Then this smoothie from Amy Gorin is for you. It gets its fiber from – you guessed it – prunes!

The vegan chocolate prune smoothie provides 7 grams of fiber and a good dose of vitamins A and C.
High-Protein Vanilla Smoothie
This high-protein vanilla smoothie recipe by Plant-Based with Amy is interesting because it gets its protein from edamame rather than protein powder.

Green juices have really enjoyed their time in the spotlight in recent years. Sure, they provide a fresh, bright cup full of vitamins and minerals that our bodies love. But whizzing up green produce means they do lose their fiber.
What if you could enjoy the same benefits of green juice with the added benefits of fiber, ideal to regulate blood sugar? This is where fiber-packed smoothies come in.
