Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my favourite summer time treats. This decadent Low FODMAP dark chocolate dipping sauce is perfect for BBQs and hot summer afternoons.

The chocolate sauce is very similar to a fondue sauce, except you don’t need a flame to keep it fluid.

This low FODMAP recipe makes enough dipping sauce for at least one large punnet of strawberries and it goes great with other low FODMAP fruit like banana (just limit yourself to one serve of fruit).

  1. Roughly chop the dark chocolate.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate, white sugar, and dairy free spread (olive oil spread or butter) in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring continuously. Then whisk in the low FODMAP milk until the chocolate sauce is smooth. Taste the sauce and add more white sugar if needed.
  3. If you are restrained enough not to consume the sauce all at once, store it in the fridge and reheat it in the microwave.

Buying Tips

Choose a dark chocolate that doesn't contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup or fructose. Also avoid dark chocolate that contains high FODMAP fruit or nuts.

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).
