DaVita renal dietitian Susan shares her kidney-friendly recipe for low-cal, fat-free Meringues Cookies. These cookies take very little effort to prepare. Simply mix together egg whites and cream of tartar, then gradually blend in sugar. Add vanilla extract and red food coloring and continue mixing until stiff peaks form. Drop onto a cookie sheet and use the bottom of a spoon to form peaks. Sprinkle with red sugar crystals and your meringues are ready to bake. Light, fluffy meringues can be enjoyed by everyone, even those on diabetes, dialysis and CKD non-dialysis diets.
