Low FODMAP dairy free recipes

Being on an elimination diet is hard enough, but even more so when you have multiple dietary requirements. It can be so difficult to find recipes that fit a multitude of dietary niches. Why is we’re talking low FODMAP dairy free recipes today.

Low FODMAP dairy free recipes

All the recipes in this post are gluten free and vegetarian or vegan. Where possible, I aim to cater as many smaller dietary niches within these groups, such as corn free or egg free recipes.

I’ve divided this roundup into categories: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snacks. My hope is that you will find these recipes as helpful as possible on your low FODMAP journey.

Is the low FODMAP diet a dairy free diet?

Not necessarily, no. The low FODMAP diet allows many sources of dairy that are low lactose. Examples include parmesan, other hard cheeses, lactose free milk and yoghurt, to name just a few.

The low FODMAP diet aims to temporarily eliminate consumption of lactose, a carbohydrate in dairy. Being dairy free means eliminating all dairy, not just products low in lactose.

With all that said, the low FODMAP diet can be dairy free if you need it to be. Hence this recipe roundup!

Is the low FODMAP diet a gluten free diet?

Not necessarily, no. The low FODMAP diet aims to eliminate high FODMAP foods for a short period of time. After this time, participants slowly begin to reincorporate foods to assess their tolerance.

While the low FODMAP diet does not prohibit gluten, most gluten containing foods are high in fructans and thus high FODMAP. As such, low FODMAP diets often prescribe gluten free foods for the duration of the elimination phase. After that, it is up to the individual to assess whether gluten/fructans continue to present an issue for their digestion, or cause no issues.

The recipes in this roundup are all gluten free. This means they are suitable for those on the elimination phase, but also other dietary niches too.

Gluten free buckwheat wraps

You might not think of wraps as a breakfast item, but I love to use them in a TikTok style egg wrap recipe. The buckwheat wrap recipe itself uses yoghurt, but dairy free yoghurt works equally well.
