I am addicted to smoothies and this low FODMAP strawberry smoothie is one of my favourites. A lot of smoothies that say they are low FODMAP still contain too many servings of fruit for one sitting. We have invested a lot of time creating a great tasting smoothie which only contains 1 serving of safe low FODMAP fruit, which is in line with the amount of fruit Monash University and Kate Scarlata use in their smoothie recipes.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Check your low FODMAP protein powder for high FODMAP additives like inulin (dietary fibre), chicory root, fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), fructose, fruit sugar, fructose syrup, crystalline fructose, HFCS, isolmalt, xylitol (E967), sorbitol (glucitol, E420), mannitol (E421), maltitol (E965), and other sweeteners ending in ‘ol’, beet fibre, and dried high FODMAP fruit.
If you decide to use a soy based ice cream, buy one that is made from soy protein (low FODMAP) and not whole soy beans which could be high FODMAP. You could also swap the ice cream out for plain lactose free yoghurt (make sure it doesn’t contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners).
Make your lemon juice and lemon zest from fresh lemon.
