Low FODMAP coconut creamed rice makes a delicious hot breakfast or a yummy dessert. I love topping mine with stewed rhubarb and strawberries, but you could just as easily top it with banana, kiwifruit or your favourite low FODMAP fruit. Adding chia seeds helps boost the fibre content and it make it a more filling breakfast option.
Storage & reheating tips: This creamed rice will cool and become quite solid. That's okay as it will soften when you reheat it. When reheating the rice, add an extra splash of milk to loosen the mixture before popping it into the microwave. Homemade creamed rice will last for 4 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
Choose a coconut milk that does not contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Low FODMAP milk options include lactose free milk, almond milk, hemp milk, macadamia milk, quinoa milk, rice milk (3/4 cup or less per serve), soy milk made from soy protein (not whole or hulled soybeans), UHT coconut milk (1/2 cup or less per serve).
Make sure your low FODMAP milk does not include high FODMAP ingredients like inulin (chicory root), agave syrup, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, or honey.
If using a dairy free alternative choose one that contains 120mg of calcium per 100ml serve, and 3g of protein per 100ml serve (this info is in the nutrition label).
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
