When you have an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) like ulcerative colitis, it’s important to be aware of your food triggers. But that doesn't mean you have to skip dessert — and there are many ulcerative colitis-friendly recipes to try this summer. Each individual is different though, so the recipes that work for some could trigger symptoms in other people. Start out slow when incorporating new foods into your diet to make sure the ingredients don’t trigger symptoms. Eating a smaller portion of dessert when you’re not having symptoms may be better tolerated.

Here are some delicious IBD-friendly summer treats we've rounded up:

1. Coconut Oil Chocolate Candies

“When you have IBD, it’s important to maintain the joy and pleasure of food by focusing on what youcaneat,” says Barbara Olendzki, MPH, RD, director of the Center for Applied Nutrition at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts. “An IBD-friendly diet is flavorful and includes many wonderful options, like raw honey, yogurt, herbs, and spices.”

One delicious dessert option is this Coconut Oil Chocolate Candies recipe. For many people with IBD, commercial chocolate can be difficult to eat because it’s sweetened with refined cane sugar, but there are still ways to enjoy chocolate using cocoa powder and raw honey, as long as the honey doesn’t trigger symptoms. Luckily, this recipe creates small, melt-in-your-mouth chocolates that are sweetened with raw honey.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp organic raw honey — local is best, adjust according to taste
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)

2. Banana Coconut Ice Cream

Did you know that you can still enjoy ice cream when you have IBD? A few simple tweaks can help you avoid the upset digestive system that can be triggerd by traditional dairy-based ice cream. This banana coconut ice cream recipe is especially nice if you’re looking for a fun alternative to vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry flavors.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup honey — local is best
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain lowfat or nonfat yogurt (optional)
  • ½ cup toasted pecans or walnuts (optional)

3. Lemon Meringue Smoothie

Sharon Rosenrauch — aka The FODMAP Friendly Vegan — has degrees in psychology, nutrition, and fitness. Due to her own struggles with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), she has a passion for promoting a holistic view on optimal digestive health. She’s also motivated to help relieve the suffering of those with digestive issues.

When asked how people who have certain food restrictions can stay positive about , Rosenrauch reminds us all to be kind to ourselves. “Don’t view food as the enemy and something that can potentially make you feel ill. Associate food with energy — it’s the fuel that drives life.”

FODMAP stands for "fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols," which are carbohydrates and alcohols that are poorly absorbed in the body. Some people with IBD find that the FODMAP diet helps them control disease symptoms.

Lemons are a great low-FODMAP digestive aid. Check out this easy-to-make lemon meringue smoothie. The creaminess of the coconut and sweetness of the ripe banana helps balance out the lemon's acidity.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut water
  • 1 ½ cups plant-based milk (a creamy one, like macadamia or coconut, if you can tolerate it)
  • ¼ cup macadamia nuts (soaked in filtered water)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla (powder or extract)
  • juice from 2 large lemons

4. Angel Food Ice Cream Cake

Megan Wells has ulcerative colitis (UC) and shares her journey on her blog, Meg is Well. She finds that food, writing, and photography help her deal with the condition.

"I know a lot of people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease have problems with dairy, but I'm not one of them,” says Wells. “When I'm having problems and want a sweet dessert, ice cream hits the spot.”

This Angel Food Cake Ice Cream recipe uses leftover egg yolks, angel food cake, and strawberry limoncello compote to make a fruity frozen treat. Note that this recipe is high in fat and sugar, which can be problematic for people with IBD.
