Jello Pudding

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.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
