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!
- 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
- Mix cream, milk, vanilla, and stevia in a pot, and heat on medium-low until it simmers.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 each high protein pudding with fruit, or whatever floats your boat. Enjoy!
