Helpful hints

  • Serve with cut-up low potassium fruit of your choice or low sodium crackers.
  • The yogurt used in this dip does not have to be vanilla flavor; plain yogurt will also work. If you use other flavored yogurt, nutrient contents may change, as well as the color of dip. The same is true if you use any flavor of Polaner All Fruit: the flavor and color of the dip will vary.
  • This dip contains dairy; small amounts are appropriate for dialysis patients when potassium, phosphorus and calcium are well controlled.  Consult your renal dietitian if needed and stick to the recommended portion.
  • Greek yogurt has higher protein content per serving than other yogurts.

My endocrinologist will only allow me to use stevia and on occasion I'm in a restaurant I can used splenda. I don't usually drink milk; I drink Almond Breeze (low calorie). I thought it was unsafe to have yogurt anymore. Dietitian comment: Small amounts of yogurt are acceptable. Most dietitians allow 4 ounces per day if you are not having problems with high potassium or phosphorus levels. In this recipe each serving contains 1-1/2 tablespoons yogurt.

i am getting really confused with the recipes here and what we are being told by dieticians at different places.. dairy of any type is supposed to be a no no from the phosphorus stand point.. not sure about this..Dietitian comment: Most kidney diets allow at least 4 ounces of milk or yogurt or 1 ounce of cheese in a day if phosphorus and potassium are running normal. If your numbers are too high your dietitian may recommend avoiding this small dairy allowance until your labs are back in the normal range. Most foods can be worked into the diet in small amounts and still meet the ranges for 'kidney-friendly' recipes and meals.

I would love to pin your recipes, and you have that option for this; however, you cannot pin without a picture. Could you please add pictures to your recipes. Dietitian comment: We've been working on a project to resolve that issue, and I'm happy to let you know you can now pin any of the recipes, even the ones without a photo.
