Helpful hints

  • Adding flour slowly should prevent lumps, but if they do appear, strain the batter to remove before letting mixture set.

On a kidney friendly diet, may one substitute almond milk instead of soy or rice milk? Dietitian comment: Yes--look for almond milk without phosphate additives.

what do you use to replace the syrup.? Although this recipe does not include syrup you could serve it over the crepes. Berries are a healthy kidney-friendly choice.

can you substitute rice milk? Dietitian comment: I'm not sure if the crepes will be as tasty but it's worth trying.

hi. i do not understand how come you put sugar, milk and egg in a recipe which is supposed to be CKD non-dialysis and diabetic friendly. Kindly explain. Thank you. Dietitian comment: The focus should be on how much sodium, potassium, and phosphorus the recipe provides. The amount of milk per serving is less than 1-1/2 tablespoons. You can substitute liquid low cholesterol egg substitute for eggs if cholesterol is a concern. There is no sugar in this recipe but if the fillings call for sugar you can use a non-caloric low carbohydrate sweetener instead.

I need a low potassium diet. Can I use any non dairy creamer and I'm assuming to use liquid creamer on all recipes that mentions this ingredient? Is original rice milk the same as unenriched? Dietitian comment: The original rice milk without phosphate additives has the words 'Original' and Classic on the front label and there are no phosphate or potassium additives. Potassium content is 28 mg/4 ounces. Nondairy creamers range from 40-150 mg potassium for 4 ounces depending on the brand. Most are lower in potassium than milk.

If you make no other recipe from Davita, make this one. It's just like all the best restaurant recipes for crepes. It comes out terrific, and you can use anything with it. I add a tiny bit of lemon rind to it, and my crepes are fabulous.

I need low potassium diet. Can coconut milk be used in place of regular milk? It would really cut down the potassium. Moderator comment: Coconut milk is very high in potassium so not recommended. A better choice is unenriched rice milk or nondairy creamer.
