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.

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.

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.


Top with some light whipping cream and raw cacao nibs to be extra fancy like me.

    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.

    This is wonderful! Thank you!

    4,5 scoops of protein is how much exactly? My scoop is 30 grams

    • Reply Krista Pool August 20, 2020 at 7:53 am

      Most scoops are 30-32g per serving. So if 30g is your serving size multiply by 4.5 = 135g total. 😊

    Can the dry ingredients be mixed with powdered milk ahead and used as needed mixed with water. I used to make hot chocolate mix this way.

    • Reply Krista Pool February 8, 2021 at 8:03 pm

      I don’t know, I’ve never tried that. Let me know if you try.

  • Reply Connie April 19, 2021 at 6:09 am

    I read somewhere that whey starts breaking down once mixed. How long can you keep the remaining servings in the fridge if you only need 1 immediately?

    • Reply Krista Pool April 19, 2021 at 1:02 pm

      Hi Connie! I would suggest eating them within 5 days.

    I made this last night and it was so good! I added swerve sweetener and a teaspoon of vanilla paste. I had no guilt and got more protein in for the day. Thanks so much

      Yay! Thanks for sharing! We’re so glad you enjoyed it!

    Just what I was looking for. Over 50 & active it’s hard to slip in protein when you don’t feel like eating protein! Thank you!

    Do you think Almond milk would work?

    • Reply Krista Pool January 16, 2023 at 6:33 am

      I haven’t tried but my guess is it would work just fine. You’ll have to let us know if you try it.

    1 gram serving???? Confused

    • Reply Krista Pool March 20, 2024 at 1:52 pm

      Hi! When you go to log this in an app like Myfitnesspal or Macros first, you can change the serving size to 1 gram and log as many grams as you want. So you can log 50g or 349g and the macros will calculate correctly.
