Grilled Pineapple with Yoghurt & Rice Cakes
Looking for a delicious low FODMAP snack? Grilled pineapple with low FODMAP yoghurt and rice cakes is the perfect option. I love this snack as it helps curb my sweet tooth while helping me enjoy a serve of fruit. Coconut yoghurt has recently been tested as low FODMAP and is an awesome way to create a piña colada on a rice cake.
Note on rice cakes: According to Monash University rice cakes are low FODMAP in 2 cake (28g serves), however they do become high FODMAP for fructans in large 4 cake serves.
Check the coconut yoghurt/lactose free yoghurt for inulin and high FODMAP sweeteners like inulin, honey, agave syrup, fruit juice, or high fructose corn syrup. Also check that your yoghurt does not contain high FODMAP fruit.
Make sure the rice cake is gluten free.
Unless you have coeliac disease, then you do not need to worry about being trace gluten free while on the low FODMAP diet. Gluten is not a FODMAP and small amounts of wheat are low FODMAP.
Nutrition Per Serve (2 rice cakes):
- Cut a 1/2-inch-thick slice of pineapple. Spray lightly with oil and grill in the oven on high for about 5 minutes per side. If you are feeling impatient you can skip this step and just use raw pineapple. Cut into chunks.
- Spread the coconut yoghurt or lactose free yoghurt onto the rice cakes, add the pineapple and sprinkle with chia seeds (optional). Enjoy!
