Low FODMAP Tip: Coconut is a low FODMAP friendly food! 2/3 cup of coconut flakes is considered low FODMAP, as is 1/4 cup of coconut milk.
What makes coconut lime popsicles a low FODMAP dessert?
These popsicles are made with:
- Coconut Milk: These popsicles are made with low FODMAP friendly coconut milk. While dairy is not necessarily off limits on a low FODMAP diet, many people opt for dairy free options when they can.
- Lime: Lime is one of the most low FODMAP friendly fruits! An entire cup of lime juice is low FODMAP friendly. In addition, limes are high in vitamin C + antioxidants.
- Toasted Coconut: Opt for unsweetened coconut flakes to keep this a sugar free dessert.
Do I need to use popsicle molds?
I recommend using popsicle molds when making popsicles at home. Sure, there are lots of tricks that you can use instead, like a paper cup or ice cube tray, but those just end up creating more waste + smaller popsicles.
The best option is a stainless steel popsicle mold. Your dairy free popsicles will slide out of a stainless steel mold much easier than a plastic mold. I find plastic molds need to be run under hot water for a few seconds prior to removal, which obviously can lead to melting + cracking of the popsicle itself.
Coconut Lime Popsicles Tips + Tricks
- Use full fat coconut milk from a can only. The fat content is what helps these dairy free popsicles freeze well + stay creamy. If you use coconut milk from a carton, you will yield an icy, watery popsicle.
- Invest in stainless steel popsicles molds for a more even freeze + ease of removal. They even come with bamboo popsicle sticks!
- Fresh lime juice is always preferable but you may use bottled lime juice if that is all you have available to you. If you prefer a more lime-forward flavor, increase juice to 2 tbsp.
- Vanilla extract can be substituted with vanilla bean paste and can be increased to 1 tsp for a more vanilla-forward flavor.
- Be sure to use a blender to mix all ingredients + distribute flavors thoroughly.
- To toast the coconut, no more than 5 minutes is all you need. Keep an eye on the oven to ensure the coconut flakes do not burn!
