This Low-FODMAP pumpkin spice latte recipe is perfect to curb your fall cravings and yes, the whipped cream is Low-FODMAP friendly! If you want less sugar, use the pumpkin spice stevia rather than the coconut sugar. You can use unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, hemp or rice milk for this recipe.
Feel free to add in more fall spices like allspice, ground cloves, and freshly ground black pepper (only a small dash of each). You can also make this ahead of time and reheat in the morning to save some time.

This low FODMAP pumpkin spice latte recipe tastes great and is fantastic for anyone who has major gut issues and is looking to follow a low-FODMAP diet to help get relief. This is a tasty and gratifying fall-time beverage your family will enjoy!
FODMAP is an acronym for naturally occurring Fermentable Oligo, Di- and Monosaccharides and Polyols. These include the short-chain carbohydrates such as glucose, fructose (present with excess glucose), galactans, polyols and lactose found widely in many healthy foods including cruciferous veggies, legumes and other veggies such as asparagus, onions and garlic.
For some individuals with digestive disorders, FODMAPS are not easily absorbed and are challenging on the bowels. For individuals with bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine (SIBO) or generalized dysbiosis, they can cause significant bloating, cramping and gas. For more about a low-FODMAP diet read this article here.
I also recommend using specifically formulated enzymes to assist in the breakdown and processing of higher FODMAP foods. FODMATE™ is an innovative enzyme formula designed for short-term use that can help support digestive health, including relief from occasional cramping, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation that may result from the consumption of high FODMAP foods.
