Pre-op pudding allowed, using skim milk ok?



Recommended Posts

My pre-op diet lists sugar free pudding. I bought some Jello pudding mix. It calls for the addition of skim milk, but skim milk is not specifically liared on my diet. I assume it is ok as yoghurt and cottage ch÷ese are allowed. I'm going to try a recipe I found to make the cottage cheese more tasty- 2 c fat free cottage ch÷ese, 2 c skim milk, and a 6 serving box of fat free Sugar Free Chocolate pudding in blender, then to fridge to set.

They have Jello, no sugar added pudding, in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, they are only 50 cal each. I suck at making pudding anyway, and for being sugar free, it's delicious!

If the pudding itself and other dairy is allowed, I'm sure this is okay as an ingredient. Portion Control though... The nutritionist probably had the snack-pack size in mind.

I honestly can't taste a difference between regular, sugar free, and fat free. When I mix it myself, I always use skim milk.

I have been making this every weekend for about a year and a half now. My husband asked me yesterday "Why dont you just buy the pudding packs?" I looked at the cottage cheese nutrition info and answered "13 g Protein per serving difference".

I make this in a blender. Mix the cottage cheese and milk first after spearing the cottage cheese film on the blender blade assembly top to minimize spray on the inside of the lid which helps with clean up. Then add dry powder mix.

After removing the pudding from the blender with a spatula I make a smoothie in the "dirty" blender to help clean up.

Unsweetened almond milk is good too and you can whip it up almost like whipped cream

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
