Vanilla Panna Cotta Protein Custard

Vanilla Bean Protein Panna Cotta

OMG. Thick creamy vanilla-y goodness. I shared this high protein pudding recipe with my boyfriend Sam’s friends during one of our regular poker games, and people were going for 2nd and 3rd helpings! This was a great ego boost since this was the first time I let any one beside Sam, or my sister Rozy try any of my protein goodies. You know your healthy baking is a success when other people will eat them lol.

Panna cotta is a creamy italian custard set with gelatin, and served cold. You can serve this protein custard plain, or with any number of fruit/caramel/chocolate etc toppings. I served mine half with fresh raspberries and mint leaves. ( I also made a yummy protein raspberry curd, but decided to serve them without it)

This high protein pudding recipe is super easy to make, and only a few ingredients. I highly recommend this one guys!

High protein pudding recipe! This vanilla panna cotta protein custard is rich and creamy, super easy to make, and delicious! A crowd pleaser for sure.
(makes 6 servings of protein custard)
  • 1½ cups 10% cream
  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • 2 packets stevia powder
  • 2 scoops (60 g) vanilla whey protein powder (I used Whey Gourmet)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla powder (or you could use a whole vanilla bean, or 1 tsp vanilla extract if you don’t have either)
  • 1 pouch (10 g) gelatin powder (or a little less (8g) if you prefer a softer texture
  • 5 Tbsp warm water
  1. Mix cream, milk, vanilla, and stevia in a pot, and heat on medium-low until it simmers.
  2. After putting the pot on, 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, 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 each high protein pudding with fruit, or whatever floats your boat. Enjoy!
