One of the big mistakes I see people making on the keto diet is not eating enough fiber. While some people seem to get by just fine without a lot of fiber (i.e., no change in bathroom habits), others seriously struggle. Although it’s not glamorous to discuss, constipation can be an unfortunate side effect of a low-fiber keto diet.

The Keto Fiber Bomb to the rescue! Fat bombs are already big on keto, so why not a fiber bomb? This drink delivers a “bomb” of fiber (don’t worry; the amount can easily be adjusted to suit your preferences) all in a yummy drink that you can flavor many different ways.

Why You’ll Love This High Fiber Keto Food Recipe

  • A Keto Fiber Bomb contains a whopping 8g fiber! (but you can adjust that to suit your preferences)
  • It can be flavored many different ways, like with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spices.
  • It also contains MCT oil, which helps deliver valuable, energizing fats.
  • It’s fun to drink. (The chia seeds gel up and make for a fun texture.)
  • It’s also loaded with tons of important nutrients like Omega 3s.

Give everything a good shake, then put it in the fridge so the chia seeds can do their thing. Chia seeds expand up to 27 times their original size!

MCT stands for “medium-chain triglycerides.” It’s a  type of oil that is quickly absorbed into the body to be utilized for energy and is popular in the keto community.

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Fridge Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 3 minutes
Servings: 1
Calories: 295kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds or less if desired (see notes)
  • 1 tbsp MCT oil
  • Keto-friendly sweetener to taste I use 3 tbsp Swerve Confectioners

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a jar with a lid (I love to use a mason jar or even a clean coconut oil jar!). 
  • Give it a good shake and then place it in the fridge.
  • Refrigerate for at least six hours (this will give the chia seeds the chance to fully expand). If you can, give it another shake or two during this time period.
  • Take it out of the fridge and shake it one more time before removing the lid. Consume or with a straw or spoon! (If you don't consume it all in one sitting, store the remainder in the fridge.)

Notes

  • You can also add spices and extracts to taste. It is great with cinnamon, banana extract, pumpkin pie spice, etc.
  • If you're new to chia seeds, you can start with 2-3 tsp and work your way up from there.
  • If you're new to MCT oil, you can start with 1 tsp and work your way up from there.
  • Make sure to consume plenty of water too! That will help the fiber in the chia seeds do its job.
  • Want to make these in advance? How long the Fiber Bombs will last in the fridge will depend on how long ago you opened your coconut or almond milk, which typically need to be consumed within 7-10 days after opening (double-check your carton). That said, even if you opened a fresh carton of coconut or almond milk for the recipe, the flavors will be best within 3-5 days of making the Fiber Bombs.

  • It’s great you posted the fiber fat bomb. I have a problem getting enough fiber and recently have been making my own version of this! I often use my homemade whole fat yogurt (yes, I know it’s not keto…but very healthy!) and add different flavors and spices and some flax seeds along with the chia!

  • I have a strange problem in that I cannot eat most vegetables, so my fiber consumption is always low. I am so excited to see this recipe with the chia seeds, and am excited to try it. I plan to start with a tsp, and work up from there. My question is how far ahead can you make these? Do I need to make them up every day, or can I make them up for the week in advance?

    • Hi Mary, I’m so happy to hear this recipe will be helpful! 🙂

      • Thanks, Jessica. Looking at the pictures makes me think of chocolate mint…I wonder how they will be with some cocoa and mint flavoring? I look forward to trying different flavors.

    • Hi Ruth! I put mine in whole, but you are welcome to grind them if you’d prefer.

      (This Harvard article says: “People often wonder if chia seeds should be eaten ground instead of whole. The surface of chia seeds is delicate and easily breaks apart with moisture; therefore they are absorbed and digested well in their whole form, unlike flax seeds.”)

  • Thanks, Jessica, for having your antenna up. I am not into cooking breakfast these days, but I know that I need something healthy to start my day. I was just getting ready to “google” the best Keto breakfast drinks, that can be prepared ahead of time, and, wallah, your recipe hit my email.

    What size mason jar do you use for your recipe? Although I will be starting with the smaller amounts of ingredients, I will graduate to the full recipe.

    Thanks again,
    Namaste!

    • Hi Delores,

      Wonderful! Sounds like it was perfect timing. 🙂 A 16 oz mason jar is the ideal fit for a Fiber Bomb.

      Enjoy! Let me know how you like them.

      Best,
      Jessica
