High-Fibre Smoothie: Healthy Recipes With Yogurt

High-fibre** Smoothie Recipe & Tips

So, what’s the deal with fibre? Some fibres are pretty important for our digestive health[1] and adding fibre to your family’s daily diet can supplement your personal healthy lifestyle choices. A no-fuss, super simple way to fill up on fibre is with a quick and nourishing glass of high-fibre** smoothie goodness*. Get the kids involved in whipping up this healthy start to the day!

Finding yummy high-fibre** ingredients

A tasty and nourishing fibre-rich smoothie is easy to make every day when you use some ingredients that are known for being source of fibre like certain fruit and vegetables, with some grains. Berries are popular helpers, with raspberries containing 6.5 grams of fibre per 100 grams. On the green side, you’ll find broccoli. It is recommended that in adults 50 or younger, women should consume 25 grams of fibre daily and men 38 grams. In adults 51 or older, women should consume 21 grams of fibre daily and men 30 grams[2]. Barley grain fibre, oat grain fibre, sugar beet fibre and wheat bran fibre (all recognised by the European Food Safety Authority and the European Commission as fibre that are contributing to an increasing in faecal bulk at 6g/100grams[3]) are easy to find high-fibre** ingredients for your high-fibre** smoothie recipe.

Yogurt: the “X” factor in any smoothie

Yogurt is the star of any smoothie, adding a deliciously rich and creamy texture to a yummy breakfast or snack. A good for your gut health yogurt with exclusive cultures, like Activia, can always be a good option. Not only does it come with Danone’s unique mix of 5 cultures that are lovingly fermented for hours on end but it’s also a source of calcium that helps in normal functioning of digestive enzymes. So if you want something that’s gut-loving* and replete with velvety lusciousness at the same time, Activia is a great bet.
