It can be hard to find a low FODMAP dessert. If it doesn’t have flour, it has milk, if there’s no milk, there’s cream…and so on and so forth. Unfortunately for Christmas pudding lovers, it is off the menu during the elimination phase of a low FODMAP diet. Fortunately, there are plenty of other Christmas classics which can be modified to be low FODMAP. Luckily, we’ve developed some delicious low FODMAP dessert options for you to whip up this Christmas!
1. Christmas brownies
If you love chocolate then brace yourself for brownie heaven! Our chocolate walnut Brownies and fudgey pecan brownies will both be absolute favourites on the day. The choc walnut brownies are quick, easy, and only contain 7 ingredients (most of which are pantry staples). The fudgey pecan brownies require a little more prep, and have a few more ingredients, but they are worth the work if you have time on your side.
2. Dark chocolate mousse cake
If you love a rich chocolate dessert then our dark chocolate mousse cake has your name written all over it! Perfect served with lactose-free vanilla ice-cream and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
If you love shortbread, then you will love our lemon macadamia shortbread. It is perfect with a cuppa on Christmas day or as a thoughtful gift.
4. Cranberry, white chocolate and macadamia bark

8. Low FODMAP trifle
If you’re a trifle lover then use a gluten-free sponge, raspberry or strawberry jelly, strawberry jam, lactose-free cream whipped with a dash of vanilla and icing sugar, lactose-free custard and sliced strawberries to make it low FODMAP.
9. Low FODMAP pavlova
If you refer pavlova then use lactose-free cream whipped with vanilla and icing sugar and top with strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit and passionfruit – yum!
