Helpful hints

  • Kool-Aid® Liquid Drink Mix does not contain phosphate additives like the powdered Kool-Aid.
  • Choose your favorite Kool-Aid® flavor.
  • Since certain types of powdered egg whites can be high in phosphorus and other additives, be sure to check with your dietitian for acceptable brand names of the product. Kelly uses Honeyville’s powdered egg whites, available at www.honeyvillefoods.com.
  • You can substitute 1-1/4 cup pasteurized egg whites for powdered egg whites. Adjust serving size.
