Vanilla Protein flan is a pretty simple recipe to complete, with a nice vanilla protein powder and some gelatine you’re pretty much on your way. The recipe/concept is the exact same as the one for BCAA Jelly, only here you are substituting the water with milk (you can also use coconut or almond) and the BCAAs for vanilla protein powder.
Add a bit of vanilla essence to the powder if you love it but you can add whatever else you like in there too. You can for example, if you’re feeling like you want to turn this into a proper ‘adult dessert,’ add a tiny bit of Cointreau or Tia Maria or Baileys or Kahlua or whatever you want. Just a bit though, enough for the kick to push through if you’re into that. Either way, the beauty of it is that it packs pretty much almost all protein! (It’s basically just a protein-shake-turned-flan).
1 pint coconut (oat, or almond) milk
1 packet gelatin
2 heaping scoops vanilla protein powder
Vanilla essence to taste
1. Heat up about a pint of coconut milk (from the carton). In a bowl, mix some vanilla essence with a packet of gelatine (each packet is about 11 grams) and 2 heaping scoops of vanilla protein powder (about 66gs in total).
2. When the liquid was hot but not boiling hot, pour it into the powders and whisked for the life of you. Bam – to the fridge in little ramekins and little glass jars for a bunch of hours until they set.
This mix yields 4 servings but, of course, you could always make one massive one.
Macros per Batch:
20g carbs (2.4 fiber)
16g fat (from the milk).
Consider using jars to put the flans in, that way you can close them up as they wait for you in the fridge and it feels like a little treat and looks all homey and with cinnamon on top?
PS – Bear in mind that gelatine is basically a protein powder; each 11g of powdered gelatin (i.e. one packet) for example = 36kcals out of which 9.4g protein and 0.0g carbs and fat.

Looks absolutely amazing! The consistency seems nearly perfect.
and really could it be ANY easier? I think not haha 😀
of course i shoulda known you had something like this in here…this sound super easy and i’ll probably have to make it tomorrow…kind of like a protein Panna Cotta
looks amazing. but how is a pint of coconut milk only 16 grams total fat? they’re like 18 grams fat / 100 grams, and pint is, what 4-5 times a 100 grams?
Nay nay, I use cartoned coconut milk, it’s very dilluted coconut milk, see: http://www.karadairyfree.com/
