Low FODMAP Blueberry, Plantain & Purple Sweet Potato Smoothie Bowl
If you are craving a sweet breakfast treat but are sensitive to fructose, then this recipe may be just for you!
This smoothie bowl includes purple sweet potato powder as well as frozen blueberries.
Blueberries have a high water content, so I like to freeze mine first before blending to stop my smoothie from turning into a milkshake! When blended with the potato powder and green plantains, it turns a beautiful deep purple red colour. I topped this smoothie bowl with shredded coconut, cherries, blackberries & dianthus.
Did you know there are over 300 different varieties of dianthus?!! Dianthus flowers are edible and look so pretty!! The diathus variety on this smoothie bowl produce saucer sized white and purple blooms. Here are some other versions I grow in my garden!
What fruit will you choose to decorate your smoothie bowl? You can unleash your creativity with your own toppings. I've listed out a few FODMAP friendly topping options to get you started.

Notes before we get started!
FODMAP red, amber green rating reflects the total amount of Fructose (FTS), Lactose (L), Mannitol (M), Sorbitol (S), Galactooligosaccharide (GOS) and Oligos Fructans (FTA) in the TOTAL volume/weight of the ingredients used in the recipe.
This recipe makes approximately 1 large bowl or 2 medium bowls (medium bowl pictured) of smoothie.
I'm a big fan of simple recipes that don't need fancy equipment. For this recipe it does help to have a good blender.
Blend the frozen green plantain, potato powder & blueberries until the mixture has the consistency of ice cream.
Scoop the smoothie mix from the blender into a bowl.
Decorate with your choice of toppings.
Tuck in and enjoy!!
