Be Mine Berry Pop

February is the month of love.

And…Valentine’s Day is around the corner!  I have a great treat you can make for your favorite FODMAPer….even if that is YOU!

Valentine strawberry dessert

As a dietitian, I love a treat that includes a little fruit with it. These adorable pops are made with strawberries dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate morsels and sprinkles! You can purchase mini bamboo skewers or lollipop sticks at your local craft store.

These are so easy and fun.  Especially with an assortment of sprinkles.  No joke…I have about 25 different kinds of sprinkles….kinda obsessed!

    These look amazing! But why is semi-sweet chocolate OK on a low FODMAP diet? And why is brown sugar OK too? I see it in all of your recipes. Isn’t brown sugar just white sugar mixed with molasses? Thank you for this blog. My daughter has ulcerative colitis and being ill and losing 10 pounds was recently diagnosed with SIBO. This is such a struggle and we appreciate your blog!

      Hi Debbie,
      I appreciate your confusion…the low FODMAP diet is confusing! The Monash Team tested both dark chocolate (semi-sweet is considered dark) and brown sugar and they measured low FODMAP. Do you have a smart phone? If so, I would encourage you to download the Monash University low FODMAP diet app. By all means, none of us should be downing copious amounts of sugar and treats….but for special occasions and in limited amounts–using brown sugar and semi-sweet chocolate morsels is a nice treat and low FODMAP. 🙂

        Well, it looks like we will be making chocolate dipped strawberries this week! Thank you!! I just downloaded the Monash University low FODMAP app…I look forward to checking out later and the assistance it will give us to help my daughter 🙂

    Hello
    Is there a way to access this monosh information app on all the rated foods if I don’t have a phone?? Do they offer the program on the home based desk top computer? If not, why not?! This is so frustration 🙁
