Lemon Coconut Panna Cotta Protein Custard

Lemon Coconut Protein Panna Cotta

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.

Protein Pudding - Protein Lemon Curd Topped Panna Cotta
(makes 6 servings of protein custard)
  • 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
  1. Mix coconut milk, stevia, and coconut palm sugar in a pot, and heat on medium-low until it simmers.
  2. Put warm water into bowl and sprinkle gelatin powder over the surface of the water to allow it to dissolve.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Garnish your high protein pudding recipe with my protein lemon curd, or whatever floats your boat. Enjoy!

  • Hi…doesn’t have coconut milk listed in the ingredients (just the directions) so I don’t know what kind or how much to use? Thanks!

  • How much coconut milk to use? I don’t see it in the recipe. Thanks
