Helpful hints

  • For CKD non-dialysis on a lower protein diet, omit the protein for a low-protein snack.
  • After protein powder is added, mix rice crispy cereal in as soon as possible because the protein powder will start to harden if allowed to cool.
  • Use the amount of protein powder equal to 160 grams protein. Protein powders vary in the amount of protein per serving. The chart below lists some popular lower phosphorus powders and the amount to use in this recipe. Ask your dietitian for help if you use a different brand of protein powder.
