Helpful hints

  • After protein powder is added mix quickly and add rice crispy cereal in as soon as possible because the protein powder will start to harden as it cools.
  • Nutrition facts based on use with EAS 100% Whey Protein powder. One half cup weighs 84 grams and contains 54 grams protein. Since protein powders vary in the amount of protein, phosphorus and calcium, ask your dietitian for a list of acceptable brands.
  • These treats are great for a snack, dessert, or breakfast on the go! 
  • Marshmallow crème is also known as marshmallow fluff. You can substitute 40 large marshmallows for 2 cups of marshmallow crème.
  • Compared to the other High Protein Rice Treats recipe on DaVita.com, this version has less protein powder so it is less dense. Both are very tasty!

Could these be made with non-dairy protein and if so what kind would be the best? Dietitian comment: Yes you could substitute egg white protein. Another option is soy protein but the phosphorus is higher.

Why are these not also for CKD non-dialysis? My dietitian has me eating 6 gm. protein for breakfast. They sound yummy and easy. Dietitian comment: You could use this recipe if CKD non-dialysis. In general we find many people limiting their protein are not using protein supplements-0-that's why it is not marked for non-dialysis.

Are there any concerns about creatin found in whey protein powder? New to the dialysis diet. Dietitian comment: No this is not a concern. The total protein consumed and the level of kidney function to remove all protein waste is more important.
