8 low FODMAP Christmas desserts
Dessert will always be my favourite part of Christmas dinner! In the statistics on the blog I can see that you, readers of Karlijn’s Kitchen, also love desserts. But that makes sense, I mean, who doesn’t love dessert? To give you some inspiration for Christmas dinner, I put my favourite low FODMAP Christmas desserts together for you.
Which low FODMAP Christmas dessert are you going to make this year?
I always thought panna cotta was a plain and boring dessert, until I made it from scratch for the first time. I love it! It is incredibly simple and you don’t need many ingredients, but it is so good. This panna cotta is made with caramel sea salt chocolate and is served with red fruits. To die for!
I love serving mini cheesecakes as a dessert! Desserts in a glass always look fancy and they are easy to make and easy to transport. This passion fruit cheesecake is delicious and fruity! You can also try out the other mini cheesecake recipes on my blog: mini strawberry cheesecakes and mini chocolate chip cheesecakes!
With pumpkin pie, you can never go wrong! This classic dessert is low FODMAP, gluten-free and low in lactose. It takes a little bit of time to make because you make the gluten-free pie crust from scratch, but the result is so worth it!
This classic Italiaan dessert cannot be left out on this list with Christmas desserts. This is a recipe for a traditional tiramisu, but on my blog you can also find a recipe for speculaas tiramisu (with Dutch speculaas cookies) and strawberry tiramisu.
This lemon mousse is a delicious fresh dessert with homemade lemon curd and crumbled cookies. Super quick and simple to make, but so good!
I am quite proud of this carrot cake cheesecake. A combination of (in my opinion) the two best cakes in the world and also low FODMAP, gluten-free and lactose-free. On my blog, you can also find a recipe for a normal carrot cake. You can find it here.
Another classic dessert that is surprisingly easy to make! To make it, all you need is lactose-free cream, milk, vanilla, egg yolks and sugar. And of course a kitchen torch to create the delicious caramelised sugar on top. Yum!
Want to end Christmas dinner with a showstopper for dessert? Then give a low FODMAP layer cake a try! I have to admit, it will take you a few hours of work. But the result is so worth it! Especially if you love baking cakes, baking a layer cake is a perfect activity in Christmas time. The cake below is a low FODMAP drip cake and I also have recipes for a low FODMAP carrot cake with three layers and a low FODMAP naked cake with lemon and blueberries.
Will you let me know if you make one of my low FODMAP Christmas desserts? I would love it if you would share your creations with me using the hashtag #karlijnskitchen on Instagram or by tagging me at @karlijnskitchen
Together we go for a calm belly!
