Protein Pudding

I shared this protein pudding recipe on Instagram stories a couple weeks ago and now it’s come to the blog!  I’d be lying if I said I don’t make this every week.  Between my 5 year old, hubby, and myself we dig on this high protein pudding snack. It’s super easy to make and you can try out new flavors each time you make it.

Take a look at this jazzy dessert! I love to eat this at night while I watch Netflix.  I just finished season 2 of Jane The Virgin and oh my goodness! If you have never seen that show go binge watch seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix RIGHT NOW. You will be thanking me for all the laughter and excitement. Protein Pudding2

Here is exactly what you need to make this special treat. I am using the sugar free, fat free, banana cream Jell-O today with vanilla whey protein.  This was my first time making this flavor and it was really good.  My favorite is probably chocolate pudding, but I’ve made the vanilla and pistachio flavors too.

Don’t forget your helper! I usually have 1-2 of them wanting to stick their fingers in every thing.Protein Pudding Helper
Start by just mixing your protein powder and pudding mix together with a spatula

Next add your fat free milk and cold water.

Mix with an electric hand mixer on low for 2 minutes. When I first mix it it’s pretty runny but it quickly thickness up.

Stir with your spatula to make sure it was all blended well. Cover with clear plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before you eat it so it thickens up.

I usually portion mine out into 6 small containers right away so they are easy to grab and eat.  Using my same ingredients each serving gives you 19 grams of protein, 13 carbs, and <1 gram of fat.  If you’re macro counting with us and haven’t used the recipe feature on MyFitnessPal yet you should! It’s super easy to input all your ingredients, enter amount of servings made, and bam! It will look just like this on your phone:

    I sometimes see on recipes “net” carbs, instead of just carbs. I know what a net carb is but I guess I’m not sure if I count regular carbs or the net carbs now?! thanks!

      Hi Brenda! We just reccomend counting carbs, not net carbs. You should still be shooting for at least 25 grams a fiber per day though.

    This pudding was recommended by a friend, and I’m anxious to try it! I’ve mixed up two batches, but the pudding has failed to set both times. The protein powder seems to settle at the bottom. Any suggestions?

      Hi Leigh,

      First make sure you’re using the instant pudding. I’ve accidentally used the regular kind before without realizing it and had the same problem. Ive also discovered that different brands of pudding sometimes yield different results. I suggest adding the water in slowly to make sure it doesn’t get to liquidy if you’re using a different brand.
