Helpful hints

  • Some gelatins contain phosphate additives and may not be recommended, especially if phosphorus control is an issue. Check labels and ingredients. Unflavored gelatin and fruit juice makes a good substitute.
  • Check the ingredients on whey protein and look for brands that do not contain phosphate additives. Protein content will vary between brands.
  • For more calories substitute regular instead of sugar-free gelatin.

High Protein Gelatin Power Cubes

If you liked the Jello Jigglers or Knox Blocks, you'll love this recipe. I made it for my patients and quite a few really enjoyed it. Some did not care for the texture. Instead of using a shaker, I put the protein powder and unflavored gelatine in a bowl and used a whisk to mix in the cold water. It's also good with vanilla protein powder and either orange or raspberry sugar-free gelatin.

We didn't have strawberry-flavored protein supplement, so I used vanilla which really tastes like coconut to me. It really was palatable for my mother. She has been very ill and no appetite, so I was quite relieved to find something that she could eat and that was also meeting her protein needs. Thank you so very much for all the work that has been put into this website. You never know--it may be a lifesaver! P.S. For those who are on fluid restrictive diets, each serving has approximately 59 ml of fluid. :)
