I'm confused with the non-Dairy Coffee RIch stuff. I found the powdered in the jar, is that what I'm using and adding water to make a milky substitute??[ ALL of the creamers in the bottles (liquid) in the grocery store, including Coffee Rich, has the added Dipotassium Phosphate. HELP please on this, I'm coming up empty with online googling! Cool Whip also has the added polyphosphateINVALID] If I use Almond milk or their creamer that adds in potassium. I can't have SOY. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. Dietitian comment: Try the Silk Vanilla-Almond creamer--no phosphate additives and 0 mg potassium per the label. The recipe calls for liquid non-dairy creamer but unfortunately most of them do have phosphate now and some are really high in potassium. Instead of Cool Whip look for Tru-Whip--a newer frozen nondairy dessert topping without phosphate additives.

I found Pasta more` Fig Balsamic Vinegar with a Splash of Vanilla. It has no sodium or protein and only 6 g of sugar and 40 calories per tablespoon. I use this as topping on my ice cream since I can't have but a teaspoon of chocolate, which is no fun! I love this stuff and use it on literally everything!

Can this be made with rice milk instead of the nondairy creamer? Trying to limit phosphorus intake. Dietitian comment: I do not think it will work because of the difference in fat content.

This is pretty good! I don't usually try to cook with my microwave, so I had some trouble getting it to thicken. It took me about 4 minutes. But besides that, it was easy and tasty.

Sounds good! Comercial ice creams would be nice as most of us do not have an ice cream freezer.

I make this for my Uncle who is a dialysis patient. I use ice cream/beverage flavorings from (they have been approved by his Davita dietian first) to give him variety and the flavors he can't have because of his dietary restrictions. He needs to gain weight so I also make this recipe, but instead of putting it into the ice cream maker, I just chill it - and he drinks it like a shake. He drinks these shakes with his meals as his fluid allowance. It's great because he is drinking protein and added calories - but not having to add more food to his diet to gain weight. Thanks so much for the recipe.

It tastes like snow cream. It's exciting to be able to eat some ice cream!
