Following a low FODMAP diet, even for the elimination period, can be a big challenge. You desperately seek low FODMAP recipes. You feel a bit lost at what to eat for each meal, when you’re used to whole grain bread and peanut butter for breakfast, and pasta with LOTS of onion and garlic for dinner. Talk about feeling like there’s nothing left to eat! I assure you though – this tropical low FODMAP smoothie bowl is ultra-satisfying.

As an IBS dietitian, I’ve put together a collection of low FODMAP recipes – to make it easy, and delicious to stick to a low FODMAP diet! For some other sunny summer recipes try these refreshing summer mocktails or this super fresh lemon quinoa salad.

Are smoothies OK with IBS?

I generally instruct my clients to stick to 1 serving of fruit per meal or snack. But SO many of my clients miss smoothies! So I’ve created this low FODMAP pineapple protein smoothie bowl to have your smoothie cravings satisfied. While it goes over a bit by that one serving, we gotta keep the low FODMAP diet practical.

Now. For those of you who are REALLY struggling to get your symptoms under control, and your dietitian has requested you stay strict strict strict, then perhaps you omit this recipe until they give you the go-ahead.

However, for the majority of my clients, we keep it practical. I allow for 1.5-2 servings of low FODMAP fruit for breakfast, as long as that breakfast is well balanced!

So here you have it, my go-to pineapple protein low FODMAP tropical smoothie bowl!

Are smoothie bowls actually healthy?

Smoothie bowls can definitely be a healthy option – especially when they are loaded with some fibre, protein and healthy fats. Adding things like avocado, hemp hearts, or chia seeds can boost up the healthy fats. Or, you can also try adding in some oats for extra fibre. Another option is to add in some greek yogurt or protein powder for extra protein.

What is the point of a smoothie bowl?

Smoothie bowls are similar to smoothies except you eat them in a bowl with a spoon instead of drinking them. The great thing about smoothie bowls is that you can add all kinds of yummy toppings which add in a lot of texture and nutrients too. For example, you could top a smoothie bowl with granola, chia seeds, nuts, or fresh fruit – like berries.

Love this low FODMAP recipe as much as we do? Our collection of low FODMAP recipes were created to help you navigate the low FODMAP diet. Many of our patients have tried implementing the low FODMAP diet on their own. However, this diet should be conducted with the support of a registered dietitian.
