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!

I call for the coconut version here. If you are a tropical flavor fan, check out my Taste of the Tropics drink, too, which features the Passion Fruit La Croix.

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!
