IBS Sano - Low FODMAP Recipes - Logo Background Gluten Free and Low FODMAP Recipe - Blueberry & lime cheesecake


300g gluten and lactose free oat cookies*

100g lactose free butter, melted

500g blueberries

225g golden caster sugar

grated zest and juice 2 limes

2 x 250g tubs lactose free cream cheese

500 ml carton lactose free double cream

4 tsp powdered gelatine

*We used ‘Free From’ which are gluten and dairy free. Do check ingredients before selecting.


Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line the base of a 23cm springform cake tin with baking parchment. Crush the gluten free cookies to fine crumbs in a blender or food processor, tip into a bowl and mix in the melted lactose free butter. Press the crumbs in an even layer over the base of the tin, then bake for 10 mins until lightly browned and crisp on top. Remove and cool.

Put one third of the blueberries into a pan with 3 tbsp water, 175g/6oz of the sugar and the zest of 1 lime. Cook for 2 mins or until the berries just start to burst. Set aside and cool. Strain the juice into a small pan, set aside, and reserve the cooked berries.

Make the filling. Whizz the lactose free cream cheese and lactose free cream with the remaining sugar, lime zest and all the lime juice until smooth.

Sprinkle the gelatine over 3 tbsp cold water in a cup, leave until it looks spongy, then dissolve until clear, either in a microwave on defrost, or by standing the cup in a pan of water over a low heat.

Beat a little of the lactose free creamy mixture with the gelatine then pour into the rest of the mixture, beating well to incorporate.

Take the cooled, cooked berries and fold lightly into the creamy mixture to create a ripple effect. Spoon onto the cookie base and chill for at least 4 hours, or until set.

Meanwhile, cook the reserved juice for 2-3 mins until slightly syrupy. Stir in the remaining uncooked berries and leave to cool. When set, carefully remove the cake and slide onto a plate. Spoon the syrupy berries on top.
