Our Vegan Low FODMAP Avocado Green Goddess Dressing can be made thicker to be used as a dip or for spreading on a sandwich or made thinner to use as a salad dressing. We do have a traditional version of Green Goddess Dressing, but that one contains dairy. This version is just as creamy but gets its body from a low FODMAP amount of avocado.

Avocados & FODMAPs

Avocados DO have a low FODMAP serving size, so please adhere to the recommended portions during Elimination.

Both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have lab tested avocados, and their results vary from one another. Monash recommends a Green Light low FODMAP serving size as 30 g. FODMAP Friendly gives them a “Pass” at 120 g.

PLEASE read our article, Is Avocado Low FODMAP? In the article we address the fact that both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly use very misleading wording in their entries. Monash says 30 g is “1/8th an avocado” and FODMAP Friendly says “½ medium avocado”. As you will see in our article, avocados can vary from 3-ounces (85 g) a piece to over 2-pounds (910 g). GO BY WEIGHT – and the weight is flesh only, not the including the pit, which should be obvious.

Florida Avocado on the left; Hass avocado on the right. Is Avocado Low FODMAP? YES!
Avocados can range in size from over 2 ½ pounds to as small as 3 -ounces (even larger and smaller than shown here). This is why we NEVER go by “1/8th” an avocado as a description.

To address the differences in results, they use different labs and they were each testing unique pieces of avocado. Neither result is more correct than the other. If you want to be conservative, go with the 30 g recommended portion size by Monash.

Blend until smooth adding more water as needed to create the texture you are after, scraping down carafe to facilitate blending. Season to taste with salt and pepper (you will need both).

Tips

FODMAP Information

Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.

  • Avocados: Both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have lab tested avocados, and their results vary from one another. Monash recommends a Green Light low FODMAP serving size as 30 g. FODMAP Friendly gives them a “Pass” at 120 g. PLEASE read our article, Is Avocado Low FODMAP? In the article we address the fact that both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly use very misleading wording in their entries. Monash says 30 g is “1/8th an avocado” and FODMAP Friendly says “½ medium avocado”. As you will see in our article, avocados can vary from 3-ounces (85 g) a piece to over 2-pounds (910 g). GO BY WEIGHT – and the weight is flesh only.
  • Lime Juice: Monash University has lab tested lime juice and it is low FODMAP in 1 cup (250 g) amounts (double that of lemon juice, as an interesting fact).
  • Scallions: The green parts of scallions are low FODMAP as determined by Monash University lab testing and can be used to add onion flavor to your low FODMAP cooking.

Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
