As boys we enjoyed the wiggly-cool goodness of Jell-O gelatin.
As men, we still enjoy Jell-O, though mostly as wrestling medium for young women trying desperately to pay off their student loans.
As physique athletes, sugar-free gelatin means we can eat something sweet and dessert-like on a reduced-carb plan for about 10 calories a serving.
So here’s a new idea for you: high-protein gelatin.
1 standard-sized package of sugar-free Jell-O or generic equivalent
Protein powder (Metabolic Drive Low-Carb, Complete, or Grow! Whey)
Fat-free whipped cream (optional)
Make the gelatin according to package directions.
Add protein powder before you refrigerate it. Whisk.
Chill for a few hours in bowls. Or if you’re a fancy fucker like me, use adult beverage glasses. (Hey, I was trying to impress a low-carbin’ dinner date, okay?)
Top with a shot of fat-free whip cream.
Get college girls to wrestle in it. Or I suppose you could just eat it.
How much protein? I’ve used a scoop and a half of Metabolic Drive Muscle Growth Formula and 1 scoop of MD Low-Carb, but play around with it. I’d like to see how much we can fit in there and it still be “jello.” And while I haven’t tried it yet, I think <a href="http://www.tmuscle.com/productInfo.do?id=1067084"target=“new”>Grow! Premium Whey may work even better.
Vanilla protein powder works well with orange, lime, and other flavors. I’ve also used strawberry Metabolic Drive with strawberry gelatin. Tons of options.
Simple, easy, and great for a hot summer day. Or a sleazy winter night. Enjoy.
