Low FODMAP Rhubarb Lemonade

  • Author: Amy Agur
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


Get fresh with this tasty low FODMAP rhubarb lemonade! Some assembly required!


  • 4 cups rhubarb, chopped
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 + 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 + 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • lots of ice
  • 3/4 cup water or soda
  • 30 ml gin *optional but highly encouraged!


  1. Combine the rhubarb, water, sugar, and lemon zest in a large saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then reduce the heat to medium-low and bring the mixture to a low simmer. Keep stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved and the rhubarb has cooked (about 10 minutes). 
  2. Remove the pan from the burner and stir in the lemon juice. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a heat-proof bowl or dish. Press down on the solids with a wooden spoon to get all the tasty liquid. 
  3. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. To serve, fill a glass with ice and serve using three parts water (or low FODMAP soda) to 1 part syrup. If you’re feeling festive, you can also pop in 30 ml of gin.
