As I said in my last post – Vanilla Panna Cotta Protein Custard – this was the first time I shared my protein powder recipes with anyone besides my boyfriend Sam, and my sister Rozy, and it was a raging success! Sam and I’s poker buddies ate this high protein pudding recipe right up, and it gave me a nice confidence boost in this whole protein baking thing :)
So again, in case you didn’t read my last post yet, panna cotta is a creamy italian custard set with gelatin, and served cold. You can serve protein custard plain, or with any number of fruit/caramel/chocolate etc toppings. I served some of my high protein pudding recipe plain, and some with my Protein Lemon Curd, and garnished them with a slice of lemon.
This high protein pudding is super easy to make, and only a few ingredients. Very worth it.
- 2 packets stevia powder
- 2 tsp coconut palm sugar (or just add 1 more stevia packet)
- 2 scoops (60 g) vanilla whey protein powder (I used Whey Gourmet)
- lemon zest (use a carrot peeler to remove the outermost part of about half of a lemon in larger pieces you can scoop easily out of the mixture later)
- 1 pouch (10 g) gelatin powder (or a little less (8g) if you prefer a softer texture
- 5 Tbsp warm water
- Mix coconut milk, stevia, and coconut palm sugar in a pot, and heat on medium-low until it simmers.
- Put warm water into bowl and sprinkle gelatin powder over the surface of the water to allow it to dissolve.
- When the pot is simmering, turn off the heat, remove lemon zest, mix up the gelatin water and whisk it into the pot. Then whisk in the protein powder.
- Pour protein custard mix into 6 individual cups/bowls/molds, let them cool to room temperature, then transfer them to the fridge to finish setting for at least 2-4 hours.
- Garnish your high protein pudding recipe with my protein lemon curd, or whatever floats your boat. Enjoy!
