  • Key Lime Protein Pudding

    Had super deep dental cleaning done today (where they numb you up & go under your gums), and knew I wouldn't be able to chew much for the next 24 hours. I had my right side done a few weeks ago, so experience tells me I would be hungry, but unable to chew. So I had the brilliant foresight to concoct something I could have. The other night I wondered if key lime juice + coconut milk & a little sweetener would taste like key lime pie.
    You know me. I'm the cat curiousity killed on its ninth life. Today was a perfect opportunity to find out. The results are very pleasing. Ready?

    2 packets knox unflavored gelatine (abt 2T)
    1/2c cold water
    1 13.5 oz can coconut milk (I used Native Forest-- ty to my PB friends for turning me on to it and foresaking Thai Kitchen! MAKE SURE TO SHAKE THOROUGHLY BEFORE OPENING)
    1/2c key lime juice
    2 scoops unflavored whey protein powder
    your favorite sweetener to taste

    In sauce pan, pour 1/2c cold water & the gelatine. Give it a stir so it's not all clumped together, then let it settle for 1 min. Over low heat, stir for at least 5 mins. The water should turn very nearly clear as the gelatine is dissolved. Remove from heat, allow to cool 5 mins.
    In separate bowl, pour coconut milk & key lime juice, add the protein powder. With a mixer (I used a stick blender, very effective), blend until protein powder is completely dissolved. Taste, and begin to add sweetener until it meets your taste bud's satisfaction.
    Slowly, drizzle the gelatin/water into your key lime base, stirring on low 30 seconds. Place in fridge. Allow to set 2 hours.

    Nutritional information (for mine):
    900 cals, 81g fat, 14g carb (100% from the coconut milk), 47g protein, 7g sugar, 72g saturated fat, 50mg sodium, 90 mg cholesterol, 770 mg potassium

    Of course, if you divide this into portions, it'll be much lower

    Also, if you switch out the coconut milk for HWC, you drop to 0 carb, but the calories go up astronomically, and you'll miss out on that terrific lauric acid from coconut milk.

    Sounds yummy: plus, think of all that lauric acid!
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

      Thanks Doc. I am gonna make this when I get some key lime juice.
      Why must we forsake Thai Kitchen? I use it all the time. Is Native Forest better?
      People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

        From what I've heard, Native Forest is BPA-free, while Thai Kitchen is not. I have tried both and I prefer the taste of Thai Kitchen, and I wasn't afraid of the BPA until I read this post: http://thehealthyskeptic.org/3-reaso...be-your-friend

        Now I have like 12 cans of coconut milk that I'm scared to use :-(

          I have no quarrel with Thai Kitchen, it was my favorite before trying NF. I think NF tastes more natural and the quality is better. BPA free helps too

            That sounds amazing, and I will definitely be trying it!

              It's terrific. Very moussey. If you've ever had the jello whips, the texture is similar, but better.

                I made this out of my chocolate egg protein powder last night and it's fantastic. I did have to add a little more cocoa powder and stevia, but the egg powder kinda has a funny taste anyway. It came out more like pudding instead of a mousse, but it's delicious. The one thing I did different otherwise was let the gelatin cool to room temp before putting the protein powder in it so it wouldn't cook the egg. Came out just fine.
