One of the greatest concerns for Tom seems to be the holidays. How this drastic change will forever change our ability to enjoy the holiday meals we have shared in the past. One of the most enjoyable things about cooking, for me anyway, is taking a recipe we USED to enjoy and modify it to fit our present dietary requirements. I have been hunting all over the web for recipes to utilize the protein powder "Unjury"....AND I HAVE FOUND Thanksgiving Recipes!! Certainly not dressing, potatoes, and pecan pie (yet), but here is the beginnings..... (all for you, my Darling Man!)

UNJURY Protein Pumpkin Pudding
1 Package (1.4 oz) Sugar-Free Vanilla Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix *
3/4 Cup water 2 scoops Vanilla UNJURY®
2 tbsp canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2-1 tsp teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Measure 3/4 cup cold water (package directions calls for 2 cups milk)
Add two scoops of Vanilla UNJURY to the 3/4 cup of water
Mix thoroughly the dry UNJURY in water by shaking or stirring
Next, follow pudding package directions.
Empty the Jell-O Sugar Free Instant (Not Cooked) Dry Pudding Mix into a bowl.
Add pumpkin pie spice to dry pudding mix
Blend spice and dry pudding mix thoroughly with a fork
Pour in the previously-mixed UNJURY-and-water.
Add 2 tbsp canned pumpkin
Stir/Beat until thoroughly mixed (a wire whisk or mixer works best)
Place in small container and chill in the fridge. Top with 1 Tablespoon Fat-Free Cool Whip. Enjoy!

UNJURY® Jell-O Delight Cranberry Flavor

Use Sugar-Free Cranberry Jell-O *, 4 serving package Follow package directions for dissolving Jell-O in 1/2 - 3/4 cup of boiling water.
After dissolving, set aside to cool for 3 to 5 minutes.
In a different bowl, measure 1 cup of cold water. Add two scoops of Unflavored UNJURY to cold water, one scoop at a time, stirring slowly to dissolve.
Stir UNJURY mixed in cold water into dissolved Jell-O. Chill quickly.
The protein will settle somewhat to create a smooth cloud at the bottom. The taste is unchanged.
