Its important to keep an eye on portion size when following a low FODMAP diet, even when it comes to fruit. Fortunately, strawberries are low FODMAP and can be eaten with careless abandon! Making this smoothie bowl especially suited to those sensitive to fructose. Its also a good choice for those of us with Celiac disease, IBS, wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity.
Frozen strawberries give this bowl its beautiful red colour. Freezing the strawberries first prevents the mixture from melting and turning to mush, even on a hot summers day.
I topped this smoothie bowl with crunchy star fruit. They have a very pleasant, sweet & fruity taste that goes very well with coconut!
