Jello Pudding

7 posts in this topic

In case anyone wants to know, I just received an e mail back from Kraft regarding my attempts at making their pudding dairy free (it is also gluten free). I had tried the instant pudding with rice milk and failed terribly as it was just a cold vanilla soup <_< . They said that I can make the cooked pudding using soy milk but that it would just come out a little thicker. My 6 year old son has been dying for pudding every since he went dairy free and he doesn't like the pre-make zen soy brand. If anyone is in the same boat, it is worth a try.

Nicole,

I use vanilla almond milk to make pudding. I use two small packages of Jello Pudding (the type you cook), and three cups of the almond milk. It calls for four (two cups per package), but as they told you, it comes out very thin.

This ratio makes chocolate and vanilla puddings that are just about the perfect thickness. The butterscotch works, too, but is slightly thinner.

To do a pie, I make the pudding as I explained above, then right after I take it off the heat (while still very hot), I whisk in a half cup Enjoy Life Chips until they are completely melted in. After it cools, the chocolate adds extra body.

I can't use soy, but I wouldn't be surprised if this would work with soy milk, too. (It does not work with Vance's dari free.)

My guess is that it needs some fat to work. :)

Paula,

Since Jello is a Kraft company, they will clearly list any gluten on the label. All you need to do is read :)

If you can tolerate soy, I've seen this at whole Foods--

http://www.veganessentials.com/catalog/soy...soy-topping.htm

Nope i cant tolerate soy, why do they have to make so many things with soy to replace casein lol. I am hoping that once i heal i can tolerate some of the stuff that i have had to give up lol.

I guess i need to start reading more huh lol. I always just assumed the pudding mix was full of gluten and casein lol, so i never bothered to read it. What im really craving is banana pudding and bananas. I guess i will have to go to the store and see if is is safe lol

I have made the Kraft vanilla and chocolate pudding with coconut milk and Vance's DariFree. I made the cooked kind and followed the recipe substituting a can of coconut milk and Vance's for the remaining amount. The chocolate turned out especially well. They were the right consistency and everything.

For whip cream, I found some non-dairy whipping "cream" during Passover that didn't have any soy or gluten. It was just like Cool Whip after I made it. Unfortunately, I didn't stock up on it at the time so now I'll have to wait until next year. If you can tolerate soy lecithin, there is Rich's RichWhip that you can use. It is in the frozen section in a little 1/2 pint milk carton.

I felt like I had discovered gold when I figured out how to make pudding with whip cream that was gluten, casein, and soy-free!

I've made some using rice milk. It wasn't Jell-O but an organic brand. I used less milk than they called for and cooked it a little longer. Daughter liked it but I thought it was a bit runny.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.  
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
