  • 2 cups cranberry-cherry juice
  • 2 packets Knox® unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 packet Dream Whip® whipped topping mix
  • 1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Boil the cranberry-cherry juice. Add unflavored gelatin and whisk to dissolve. Pour into an 8” x 8” pan. Put in refrigerator until set. Cut into 64 pieces. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine protein powder, Dream Whip®, milk, and vanilla extract. Beat with a hand-mixer on high until soft peaks form, about 3-4 minutes.
