Keep It FODMAP Friendly
This low FODMAP strawberry maple smoothie will be your go-to breakfast in no time! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP-friendly.
First up, strawberries. According to the Monash app, these tasty little berries are low FODMAP in servings of 5 medium-sized berries (65 g) per sitting. Servings of 6 berries (75 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructose.
We'll be using 1 cup of strawberries, which works out to 1 serving of strawberries per sitting.
Next up, milk. If you're in the elimination phase of the Low FODMAP Diet, you'll need to use lactose-free milk or a milk alternative.
Last but not least, maple syrup. According to the Monash app, pure maple syrup is safe in servings of 2 tbsp per sitting. Monash doesn't specify a maximum serving size.
Our recipe uses 1/4 cup for two servings. This works out to 2 tbsp per serving which is within Monash's recommended range.
