Looking for a tasty breakfast on-the-go? Try this simple low FODMAP yogurt parfait. Made with savoury granola and fresh strawberries, it will keep your taste buds and your tummy happy!
This low FODMAP yogurt parfait is a standard recipe in our house. I love it because it's so easy to pack all the parts separately the night before and throw them together in the morning for a spectacular breakfast.
Because good friends share, I'll let you in on Ontario's best-kept secret. The trick to a fantastic parfait is to smash the strawberries with a potato masher or a ricer before you add them. This sweet, sticky mess mixes spectacularly with the yogurt and creates a true breakfast of champions.
Smooshing your strawberries works best with fresh, local strawberries. If strawberries don't grow in your region (or if they're out of season), frozen strawberries will work just fine. You can also go for a classic sliced strawberry if that's your jam.
Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Looking for a new way to start your day? Try this simple low FODMAP yogurt parfait! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, yogurt. If you're in the elimination phase of the program, you'll need to use lactose-free yogurt. You should also make sure to check the label for added high FODMAP ingredients like high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), xylitol, sorbitol, inulin, and natural flavours like cherry, blackberry, peach, etc.
We'll also be using strawberries. According to the Monash app, strawberries are low FODMAP in servings of 5 medium-sized berries (65 g) per sitting. Servings of 6 berries (75 g) are high in the FODMAP fructose.
Our recipe calls for 4-5 fresh berries, which is considered 1 serving of fructose.
Last but not least, granola. Many granolas are high FODMAP, as they contain high FODMAP nuts, dried fruit, and sweeteners like honey. While there are some low FODMAP granolas available, I usually make my own.
For this recipe, I like using my low FODMAP stovetop granola recipe. This recipe is a bit sweeter, so it pairs nicely with the strawberries. If you're looking for something savoury, try my low FODMAP crunchy granola. Heads up! This recipe was calculated using my low FODMAP stovetop granola. If you use something else, don't forget to adjust your FODMAP math.
