Need a drink to have as a treat? Virgin piña coladas combine the delicious flavours of banana, coconut and pineapple to create a refreshing drink! Make sure you freeze the banana and make the sugar water in advance to speed up the prep. To keep this recipe low FODMAP make sure you divide it into the recommended number of serves.
Note on coconut milk: Canned coconut milk is low FODMAP at a 80ml (1/3 cup) serve.
FODMAP Note: Common bananas when they are firm (unripe - green or just yellow) are low FODMAP in 100g serves, however they become high FODMAP for fructans when ripe (yellow with brown spots).
Cooking Tip: Prepare the sugar water in advance and have it waiting in the fridge. That way you won't have to wait for the sugar water to cool when you are ready to have your refreshing drink.
When choosing bananas make sure you select common bananas and not sugar bananas. Then use the bananas when they are firm (green to just yellow) and then become high FODMAP when they are ripe (have brown spots).
