Energizing Low-FODMAP Pineapple Orange Smoothie; Gluten-free, Vegan, Dairy-free

Print Friendly Version

Bright as the sun and full of energizing ingredients, this pineapple orange smoothie is a great start to your day.

I love the tangy sweetness of pineapple, a fruit that is naturally low in calories, high in fiber, and packed with Vitamin C, minerals, and antioxidants. Adding the orange juice and zest provides another layer of flavor that reminds me of an Orange Julius from the mall where I grew up.  So good.

FODMAP fact: Fresh pineapple is low FODMAP in servings of 140g.  Do not substitute canned pineapple as it will alter the FODMAP content of this smoothie.

Chef’s Notes:

  • To make a sugar-free version of this recipe, substitute stevia or sucralose for the sugar.
  • When zesting fruit, ensure you use only the bright colored exterior, and not the white pith, as the pith will taste bitter. Zest is very potent; a little goes a long way in adding flavor to your smoothie!
