Low FODMAP Breakfast Smoothie
While some breakfast smoothies can be a high FODMAP disaster because of the lactose from milk, sorbitol and excess fructose from fruits, this is one recipe that successfully fits into the elimination phase of a low FODMAP diet.
Top tip: keep fruit intake to 1 serving per meal. In smoothies it is especially easy to overdo fruit, so it’s important to be mindful of the amount you add when making smoothies.
