- 300 g strawberries

- 2 egg whites
- Wash the strawberries and cut them into pieces. Then place them in the freezer.
- Blend the frozen strawberries with the dextrose and lemon juice.

- Serve in glasses or cups, as you prefer! You can decorate with some strawberry pieces.
The only FODMAP in this recipe is the strawberries due to their fructose content. Servings of 5 strawberries (approximately 65 g) are low in fructose. Ripe fruits have higher fructose content, so freeze them on the same day of purchase to prevent further ripening. The portion size of this dessert is calculated to be low in fructose.
As for the sweetener to use, you have various options. Dextrose is an alternative for individuals with fructose intolerance who do not tolerate sucrose well. However, you can use any sweetener of your choice. The equivalent amount if you want to substitute it is 100 g of regular sugar.
