Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 3 scoops Syntrax Nectar®  whey protein isolate powder, Vanilla Bean Torte flavor
  • 1/4 cup Torani® sugar-free vanilla syrup
  • 2 teaspoons root beer extract
  • 1/2 cup diet root beer soda

Preparation

  2. Add root beer extract and blend.
  3. Pour mixture into 4 cups  and slowly add 2 tablespoons root beer soda. Enjoy!

Helpful hints

  • Select almond milk or other milk substitute without phosphate additives. Check labels and ingredient list or ask your dietitian about recommended products.
  • When soda is added mixture will foam, so add slowly and stop until bubbles reduce if needed to prevent bubbling over.
  • A & W® diet root beer and Barq's®  diet root beer are acceptable brands of root beer for a kidney diet because there are no phosphate additives.
  • If Syntrax Nectar® whey protein powder is unavailable, ask your dietitian for an appropriate substitute. EAS®  100% whey protein powder is an option and provides approximately 13 grams of protein per scoop.
