Helpful hints

  • If desired, add 1/3 cup lemonade base or sugar free lemon base from the DaVita recipe  instead of the fresh lemon juice. The low sugar version made with sugar free lemonade base and sugar free sweetener has 50 calories and 13 g carbohydrate. Count as 1 low potassium fruit and one carbohydrate choice.
