      Amy–you stumbled upon an old post! YOU are correct Pears are a full of FODMAPs. When I started the blog I had no intention of dong a low FODMAP diet based blog—but my blog readers predominantly wanted FODMAP info–SO….it evolved into a low FODMAP recipe site. My website developer and I are working on a blog update to help make this more clear for those who visit who ONLY want low FODMAP recipes!

    Lemon and pear sounds perfect! I’ve never tried a smoothie with these two fruit together. I think it’s about time I got a taste of it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
