I have a massive sweet tooth and I love taking classic dessert recipes and making them FODMAP safe. I made this dessert for our housewarming party and it was a HUGE hit. I was actually shocked to find that so many people loved it and they had NO idea it was dairy-free and gluten-free! That’s the best compliment you can give someone. This isn’t exactly a healthy summer dessert but sometimes you just need a good splurge, am I right?! Plus, there are much unhealthier options than this one. 🙂 You will want to be sure to categorize this under FODMAP diet desserts.
As we are in the heart of summer, there are a ton of BBQ parties to attend and it can be difficult when you have food sensitivities or allergies. It’s the worst feeling showing up to a party and realizing there is literally nothing you can eat. This has happened to me on so many occasions that I wrote a post on how to survive a summer BBQ. You will also find a bunch of FODMAP safe recipes that you can bring to the party and be the hero to your host/hostess!
This dessert is great to make for a crowd but good luck sharing!
- Add pretzels in batches in a food processor and blend until crumbly. Pour pretzel crumbs in a large bowl and add the butter and 1 tablespoon sugar. Mix with a fork, pressing sugar and butter into pretzel crumbs. Set aside.
- In a medium size bowl, add strawberries and 1 tablespoon sugar. Mix well to coat and set aside.
- In an electric mixer combine the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla on medium speed until mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add whipped topping and mix until combined.
- In a large trifle bowl, add an even layer of pretzel mixture, followed by a thin layer of strawberries and a layer of whipped cream mixture. Repeat until you reach the top of the dish. Garnish with strawberries. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
