Some more ideas
Apricot yoghurt smoothie: Use dried apricots to make a smoothie with an extra charge of beta-carotene and fibre. Gently simmer 200g (7oz) ready-to-eat dried apricots in 900ml (1½ pints) of strained Earl Grey tea for about 30 minutes or until tender. Cool, then pour the apricots and liquid into a blender. Add the orange zest and juice and yoghurt, and blend until smooth. Taste and sweeten with sugar, if required.
*Add a sliced banana to the strawberries. This will thicken the texture of the smoothie and will also add natural sweetness, so taste before adding sugar. You may not need any.
Strawberries contain higher levels of vitamin C than any other berries. And, despite their sweetness, 115g (4oz) of strawberries contain fewer than 32kcals!

Fruit and vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet. In general, the more you can eat the better. They provide fibre, many important vitamins and minerals, they are generally low in calories and fat and they provide protection from cancer and other diseases.
Kitchen hygiene and food safety
Good food safety means knowing where bacteria are likely to thrive and not giving them a chance to get comfortable.
Fruit is a rich source of vitamins and minerals - not to mention the fact that it tastes great!
Is it a Smoothie or a Milkshake?
Some people are confused and think that smoothie and milkshake are one and the same. Not surprising since they are both blended beverages could have the same components like fruits and dairy products. The difference lies in the base.
Smoothies are typically made using (real) fruit or vegetable. Milk and yogurt can be added and sometimes grains and nuts. They can be a meal on their own as they can be quite filling and contain essential nutrients.
Milkshakes, on the other hand, has more dairy product like milk or ice cream. You can add fresh fruits for flavor but most of the time fruit syrups are used. It is really more of a beverage that you have with a meal. It is also normally served with whipped cream on top.

STRAWBERRY YOGHURT SMOOHTIES
Sometimes when you’re on a restricted diet, you can easily be at a loss at what to eat. When you’re just getting started on a diet free of grains, starches, lactose, and refined sugar, you also get hit by cravings pretty easily. This is the point at which it’s easy to fall off the horse and make mistakes because you’re simply hungry and if you haven’t prepared for that, you have nothing readily available to eat. Homemade yoghurt was one of the foods that helped me beat my cravings. Early on in the diet, I started making 24-hour yoghurt. The yoghurt is fermented for a full 24 hours to ensure that it’s lactose free and has the highest possible amount of gut-soothing probiotics. The yoghurt, and later fermented heavy whipping cream, gave me a whole new dimension on how to juggle the diet. I used it to make healthy and delicious breakfasts, desserts, treats, sauces, and dips. I even bought a second yoghurt maker to make sure that there’s always yoghurt available in my house. Whenever the kids had food cravings, they could simply mix yoghurt with honey and vanilla extract for a simple and satisfying snack.
From there, we started exploring more and more recipes, and this smoothie recipe is one we developed just recently after I had some minor dental surgery and was unable to chew anything crunchy. Usually, I eat a lot of raw foods, but chewing was painful and took forever. At first, I simply ate less and only soft foods, but then I started getting really hungry. Eventually I started making smoothies and it was a great relief when I finally felt full after one large strawberry yoghurt smoothie. It tasted so good that we kept making them for the whole family for the next couple of days. Next, Amelie started freezing the smoothie in an instant popsicle maker and I know I will have to keep buying strawberries for a while since it’s become one of these food trends in our house that seems to last for a while.

Do You Have to Use Plain Yogurt?
I typically prefer plain greek yogurt to minimize the sugar, but if you prefer a strawberry greek yogurt smoothie or a vanilla yogurt smoothie recipe, you can use flavored options.
I typically find that all of the other ingredients cover the taste of the tart greek yogurt, but my taste buds are also accustomed to eating plain greek yogurt.
A Blender (We used to have this one and finally upgraded to a Vitamix and it was 100% worth the investment. If you use your blender often, or want to make yummy blender muffins like these Healthy No Sugar Added Strawberry Muffins, highly recommend!)

- Chop the strawberries into halves or quarters depending on their size.
- Place the low FODMAP milk, strawberries, vanilla soy ice cream (lactose free ice cream or lactose free yoghurt), rice protein powder, chia seeds, maple syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla essence in the blender. If using fresh strawberries make sure you add some ice cubes.
- Blend until smooth. Sometimes the mixture goes a bit thick because it is too cold. If that happens then add a small amount of hot water, mix through and then blend again.
- Serve immediately. It is better to drink this smoothie straight away, otherwise it will melt and separate, which will change the flavour.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Check your low FODMAP protein powder for high FODMAP additives like inulin (dietary fibre), chicory root, fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), fructose, fruit sugar, fructose syrup, crystalline fructose, HFCS, isolmalt, xylitol (E967), sorbitol (glucitol, E420), mannitol (E421), maltitol (E965), and other sweeteners ending in ‘ol’, beet fibre, and dried high FODMAP fruit.
If you decide to use a soy based ice cream, buy one that is made from soy protein (low FODMAP) and not whole soy beans which could be high FODMAP. You could also swap the ice cream out for plain lactose free yoghurt (make sure it doesn’t contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners).
Make your lemon juice and lemon zest from fresh lemon.
Low FODMAP milk options include lactose free milk, almond milk, hemp milk, macadamia milk, quinoa milk, rice milk (3/4 cup or less per serve), soy milk made from soy protein (not whole or hulled soybeans), UHT coconut milk (1/2 cup or less per serve). Make sure your low FODMAP milk does not include high FODMAP ingredients like inulin (chicory root), agave syrup, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, or honey. If using a dairy free alternative choose one that contains 120mg of calcium per 100ml serve, and 3g of protein per 100ml serve (this info is in the nutrition label).
