I gave this recipe out for samples at my clinic and people loved it! People were really skeptical about trying egg whites but honestly it tasted great - just like a milk shake.

Chocolate Smoothie

would itt be possible to use non dairy creamer instead of non dairy frozen whipped topping for the smoothie?

I don't understand, I was told no cocoa or chocolate Moderator comment: You can still stay within your targets for potassium and phosphorus and include small amounts of chocolate. In this recipe the 1 tablespoon of chocolate contributes 81 mg potassium and 39 mg phosphorus to the total recipe. Most of the potassium and sodium is from the pasteurized egg whites.
