Low FODMAP Desserts

Finding low FODMAP desserts can be challenging because so many sweeteners are high in FODMAPS. Thankfully, these Creamy Coconut Popsicles don’t have added sweetener and every ingredient is suitable for this diet. 

Of course, there are several different types of low FODMAP desserts. My pumpkin custard is a delicious option in the fall. The maple syrup is optional and can be left out entirely. Or, these chocolate covered bananas would be delicious as well.

Because these Creamy Coconut Popsicles are dairy-free, it’s perfect if you are looking for low FODMAP desserts that are vegan.

What desserts can you eat on a low FODMAP diet?

These Creamy Coconut Popsicles are perfect because they contain low FODMAP foods. But, if you want a few other ideas, you need to avoid sweeteners, refined grains, processed foods, dairy products, and fruits like cherries, apples, pears, and figs. Of course, this is not a complete list.

What can you have? 

  • Lactose-free strawberry yogurt
  • Gummy candies
  • Dark chocolate is perfect if you want low FODMAP candy.
  • Popcorn

Can you eat sweets on low FODMAP?

You can, yes, within reason. Sweeteners need to be eaten in moderation. And, not all sweeteners are allowed. If you add sweetener to your low FODMAP desserts it needs to be one that has the same amount of glucose and fructose like Splenda, some types of stevia, and Sweetex

Because I am not a fan of artificial sweeteners, I usually opt for stevia or simply leave it out entirely when I’m making low FODMAP recipes.

Variations

If you want to try something other than strawberries, you can make this or any other low FODMAP desserts with blueberries, sliced bananas, kiwis, papaya, or pineapple. Or try making a combination of a few of these. Strawberry and pineapple sound delicious. Or, kiwi and blueberry would make a beautiful combination.

Tips for making Creamy Coconut Popsicles

  • For best results, freeze overnight. But, at least 6 hours should work.
  • To unmold your popsicles more easily, dip them in hot water for a few seconds, and then slide the popsicle out of the mold.
  • These will stay good in the freezer for three to four weeks if they last that long.
  • For a fun variation, dip the finished popsicles in toasted coconut before serving.
