Low-FODMAP Passionfruit Champagne Bellini; Gluten-free, Vegan

Printer Friendly Version

Doesn’t this recipe sound like heaven? Passionfruit combined with sparkling wine.  Chilled and served in a champagne flute with mint leaves on the side.

This gorgeous sparkling beverage is perfect for the holidays, or on the beach at sunset.  It’s like a Bellini, but with passionfruit.  You are going to love it.

Passionfruit is not a common selection for those of us in North America, but it is quite delicious and low in FODMAPs in serves of 46g.  Plus it is super healthy: Just one 17 calorie fruit has 2 grams of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, and potassium.  You also get its beneficial plant compounds, including carotenoids and polyphenols (antioxidants)!

Passionfruit is also a delicious enhancement for the flavor of wine.  It has just the right amount of tart, while providing so much interesting flavor.  Super refreshing.

If you love this sparkling wine and fruit combination, then consider trying it with other low-FODMAP fruit, such as strawberries or kiwi.  The recipe is very modifiable!

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Prep time: 10 min

Serves: 2 or more

Ingredients

  • About 3 Passionfruit
    • If using fresh, frozen fruit, then use 92g
      • This is something I easily found at Kroger, in the freezer section
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) simple syrup
    • Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water, brought to a boil. You can purchase it premade, or make your own
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 6 ounces sparkling wine, or champagne (plus 1-2 ounces additional, as desired)
    • 5 ounces is one low-FODMAP serving
  • Fresh mint, for garnish

Directions

  • If using fresh passionfruit, core the passionfruit, and set aside the seeds
  • Blend the passionfruit in a blender, then measure out 92g
    • If you have fresh, frozen chunks, then just add 92g to your blender and blend
  • Return the 92g to your blender (or use a shaker), and add simple syrup and lemon juice
  • Blend again, or shake well, then pour into 2 chilled champagne flutes
  • Add about 1 ounce sparkling wine to each and stir well, to minimize foaming
  • Add the rest of the wine, topping with additional wine to taste
  • Serve immediately, garnished with fresh mint and lemon rind
    • If you have the seeds, you can also use those for garnish!
