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.

How to Make an Easy Keto Diet Fiber Bomb
This is just a quick overview of how to make the keto diet fiber bomb. For the recipe in detail, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.
Add all ingredients to a jar with a lid. TIP: I love to use a mason jar or even a clean coconut oil jar!
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!
At least six hours later, pull it out of the fridge to get this! Enjoy it with a straw or spoon.
TIP: If your sweetener or additional seasonings (like cinnamon or banana extract, as in my Keto Banana Smoothie) aren’t yet to your liking, feel free to adjust them before drinking.
Tips for Drinking Your Fiber Bomb
- If you are new to chia seeds, you can start with only 2-3 tsp.
- If you are new to MCT oil, you can start with only 1 tsp.
- Play around with different spices and sugar-free extracts to taste.
- Make sure to drink plenty of water too!

- 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.)
- 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.
