How to add protein powder to jello?



Recommended Posts

Just had surgery yesterday, so I am on the "liquid phase." Not many choices and I need to add Protein Powder to what I eat. How do you add Protein powder to Jello? I sprinkled some vanilla flavored GNC whey on it. :huh2:It was on odd texture, jello with dry powder. The taste wasn't too bad. Just looking for some suggestions on this beginning phase. I am not too hungry yet. Still recovering (quite well, actually) from surgery. In fact, I feel so well, it's difficult to realize I am VERY limited in my food choices! I feel like I could eat whatever I wanted! I am being good and following the doctor's orders. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks. Karen

I just added the Protein powder to the Jello before I set it in the refrigerator to set up. Be sure to stir it really well. It may change jello to a sort of creamy color, but it shouldn't affect the consistency. Well, allow me to back-track here and say, I suppose, that it depends on the type of protein powder you have.(?) Mine can be used in just about anything--liquids, baking...I'm still in the pre-op stage, but this may halep you some.

I truly laughed when I envisioned you putting dry Protein powder on your jello---oooououououououo! :D

The Protein would be added to the cold Water when you are MAKING the Jello from scratch! However, I'm not a Jello person--so I make sugar free fat free jello instant pudding: Add 2 scoops unflavored whey protein isolate to 2 cups cold skim milk and mix. Add a small 3 oz. package of any flavor jello instant pudding (make sure it says sugar free/fat free), whip it up, and put it in small 1/2 cup containers in the frig. (Makes about four)

I've read in these threads where people also put the unflavored protein in mashed potatoes, oatmeal, etc. but I've only ventured into the pudding. Good luck in your journey!:rolleyes:

Thank you for the jello/pudding recipe. You can tell I am a newbee. I have learned more from this web site than I have from my doctors/nutritionists! Karen H p.s. I am glad to provide a chuckle!

Today when I was researching where to get my next supply of unflavored whey Protein isolate (powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury is just too darn expensive!), I found this website that had a ton of recipes!

BiProUSA.com - Whey Protein isolates, hydrolyzed whey Proteins, recipes and more and click on recipes in the Menu Bar just under the header on the page. (If you come to a home page, just click on "Recipe Contest Update" and then Recipes).

I'm still relatively new at this too, and the only way I've learned anything is through reading on the Internet, Karen. :tt1:

Thanks I've been looking everywhere for a more simple way to make the sugar free jello pudding pops. I actually purchased the GENEPRO? really wasn't sure which one to use, this is what GNC recommend. I have a quick question please. Can I use almond milk in place of the skim milk? I have watched so many different youtube videos that I think I heard somewhere that the almond milk will not work? Thanks so much in advance for you help.

No, if you use almond milk, the pudding won’t set.

As a tip, it works great to mix instant pudding in a shaker container. (That you mix shakes in) it’s extra easy to portion out into smaller containers.

Thanks so very much for the info. I knew I thought I'd heard that about the almond milk, but wasn't sure. I so appreciate the feedback,

Also, how are you feeling? I hope all is going smooth for you. I am suppose to call first thing Monday morning to get my surgery date. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time.
