Passion Fruit & Coconut Are Low FODMAP In the Right Amounts
I LOVE passion fruit. I also live in the U.S. so these are exotic fruit for us. They taste like a vacation to me and I knew that I wanted to create a non-alcoholic beverage that would feel fancy, sipping from decorative stemware, yet contained no alcohol and of course was low FODMAP.
This drink, which I have dubbed “Passion for Coconut”, also includes a delicate coconut flavor from coconut sparkling water.
La Croix Sparkling Water
I was in that very non-tropical city of Denver taping my Coffee Cake video class for Craftsy, when it was time to order lunch. The food stylist ordered coconut La Croix sparkling water.
I was unfamiliar with the brand at that time, but the beverage sounded right up my alley, so I followed suit. And never looked back.
Low FODMAP Beverages in MANY Flavors
Our FODMAP Everyday®Monash University trained Success Team RDN Vanessa Cobarrubia called the manufacturer about the natural flavors in the La Croix beverages and ALL of the flavors have received a go-ahead from her as low FODMAP!
Passion Fruit is Low FODMAP
Monash University has lab-tested passion fruit and it is low FODMAP in servings of 46 g per serving. Monash says this pulp is derived from 2 fruits.
These would be very small passion fruit. Our single passion fruit yielded the 36 g/2 tablespoon amounts that we used for 1 serving.
So pick a pretty glass and in less than 5 minutes you will be sipping our Low FODMAP Passion for Coconut drink. Consider it a mini-vacation, on us!
