No-Sugar Candida Coleslaw

Candida coleslaw

Here’s a really simple coleslaw recipe that you can serve alongside your burgers and gluten-free buns, take on summer picnics, or simply enjoy alongside your evening meal. Its a healthier version of your regular coleslaw, but it tastes just as good.

Instead of the typical coleslaw ingredients (white vinegar, sugar, mayo), this recipe uses Candida-safe foods like plain yogurt, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and a little stevia. These combine to create a creamy texture and a refreshing taste that’s just perfect for outdoor dining.

This recipe even includes some probiotic bacteria in the yogurt to promote good gut health. For the most benefit, make sure you buy plain probiotic yogurt or, even better, make your own yogurt at home. And it also includes cabbage, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and improve gut health.

    I love coleslaw, but I’m not a fan of all the mayo and sugar that is usually in it. This is the 3rd of 3 of your recipes I made tonight, my first time making recipes for candida diet, and I was not disappointed! Tangy, creamy, crunchy deliciousness. I used liquid stevia since I don’t have the powdered stevia. One drop is all it took. I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes.

    I am highly allergic to Stevia. Is there something else I can use please?

    Can we have raw plain yogurt or does it have to be pasteurized.

    I substituted vegenaise for the yogurt and only one tsp of apple cider vinegar- turned out delicious!

    Great recipe! I have made this several times. It is simple to make, and delicious to eat! I love the creamy crunch in each bite. The color of the coleslaw is pretty, too. It’s a perfect side for lunches.
