Helpful hints

  • Protein powders vary in protein, potassium, sodium and phosphorus per scoop. Your dietitian can guide you to the best kind for you.
  • Some brands of almond milk have phosphorus additives; check the ingredient label for phosphorus additives.
  • Look for protein powders without phosphorus additives, if possible to help keep phosphorus low in this recipe.
  • Let fudge cool completely before cutting.
  • For people with diabetes, cut fudge into 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 inch pieces and count as one carbohydrate choice.
