DaVita renal dietitian Bonnie from Texas shares her kidney-friendly recipe for Lemonade or Limeade Base. Begin by heating water and sugar (or sugar substitute) until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool and then add lemon (or lime) peel and lemon (or lime) juice. Mix and chill. Store in the fridge until you’re ready for a refreshing beverage. For each glass, combine 3 ounces of base with 3 ounces of water. This tasty, low-sodium beverage is appropriate for those following diabetes, dialysis and CKD non-dialysis diets, has no cholesterol or fat and is low in potassium and phosphorus.
