Low FODMAP mini trifles with strawberries

I’ve said it before, but I love serving traditional dishes from other countries at Christmas.

This dessert is also one of them: low FODMAP and gluten-free mini trifles with strawberries. This dessert originally comes from England.

We have regularly had a themed Christmas dinner at our house.

Then we chose a particular cuisine, such as Italian, Turkish, or British cuisine, and each cooked a dish from that country.

I always really enjoyed that, because it allows you to cook something slightly different than normal and try dishes from another country.

For example, you can also find a complete Italian Christmas menu on my blog.

In terms of desserts and baking recipes, I am always a fan of English cuisine. That may also be partly due to The Great British Bake-Off, which I enjoyed watching for years.

And this dessert also comes from England. It is often served as a large trifle in a large glass bowl on a stand.

I chose to make low FODMAP mini strawberry trifles that each come in an individual glass.

This makes them handy to take with you, for example, if you make these trifles for a Christmas dinner at someone else’s home. And you immediately divide the portions.

The ingredients of the low FODMAP mini trifles

The Trifle consists of a number of different layers. These mini trifles have the following layers:

  • A cake layer made from gluten-free vanilla cake.
  • A layer of custard: I make this from custard powder and lactose-free milk.
  • A layer of cream: I make this with lactose-free whipping cream.
  • A layer of fruit: I use strawberries and raspberries for this. But you can also choose other fruits.

Divide these ingredients into layers over the glasses and you get a delicious gluten-free trifle!
