So when I made it I boiled water, put the jelly in a bowl and stirred in the water until everything dissolved. I will buy jelly next week and test it out again and get back to you...

here is the recipe if you are interested

Mango Sunrise-(Phases 1-4)

(Raspberry Flavored Gelatin)

Ingredients:

1 packet of Ideal Protein Raspberry Gelatin
1 packet of Ideal Protein Peach Mango Drink

Preparation:

Mix the Ideal Protein Raspberry Gelatin and the Ideal Protein Peach Mango Drink in a bowl. Refrigerate until solid. Will separate into 3 'Sunrise' colors. Delicious enough to serve to guests
Thanks so much 2RiderRollerCoast... I tried this and liked it so much. I'm getting ready to make it again. I tried letting it sit a little before I mixed the jelly in and then used a whip. It worked a lot easier than I remembered. I do look forward to your update after you try it again. It looks like we are working toward riding the RollerCoast together having started IP about the same time... I appreciate your help. Smile.

I use my Pampered Chef Mini Whipper....I swear by that thing for mixing jello, drinks, gravy, etc.

I seem to remember, some 30 years ago, a GF in the Airforce (another wife and mom) had a secret to making the process much easier and more successful. She'd let it sit for about 5 minutes first then stir... or something like that. I'm just wondering if anyone has found a way to make this a little easier for this ole fibro lady. Smile. I was amazed at how great it tasted and with my new sagging facial skin could sure use the collagen. I tried the PomBlu Drink and found it way too strong... Maybe I should use more water than called for?

Default 3 or 4 on collagen days?

I just resurrected this thread, rather than starting a new one.

My coach told me on days I have the Raspberry Jelly/Jello or Blu/Cran/Pom to have that as an "extra" or 4th packet.

I've not heard others talking about that so I wanted to bring it here to get more info

I have been eating jello for the last fews weeks daily if not twice and was told it was unrestricted and no limit. I havent had any problems. I have only 3 packets a day. I was told I didnt need to add any extra packets.

When I did my first round of IP, lost 30+ lbs, I had the jelly everynight as my snack.. My coach knows this and never said anything about it being limited per week.

So my question was specifically about it being a "free" 4th packet, every other day, which is how my coach worded it

Is this what others have been told?

How come we're not allowed to use the store Jello with 10 cal? What is it about the artificial sweeteners that is a big no no? I know the store one wouldn't have any benefit other than being a "treat" but I have a hard time paying $4.00 for a tiny bowl of jello... Can we use diet jellos?

My coach told me I could have unlimited store bought Jell-o as long as it was the sugarfree kind... Too many variations! Who's right? Lol

I was given a sheet with my intro packet that had the IP logo on it that stated the collagen products (raspberry jelly and cran-Granata drink) can be had every other day in phase 1 and every day in maintenance. My coach said this was in addition to the 3 packets because they are incomplete proteins, the other IP packets have all 8 amino acids, blah, blah that's when she lost me and I forgot the rest of what she said.

She caught it when I had the raspberry jelly everyday as a snack one week as 1 of my 3/day packs (I had neglected to read that sheet and she brought it to my attention).

As to the commercial sugar free jellos, they usually contain aspartame, which should be avoided as the pancreas can react to it like sugar and spike insulin production (from what I have read on this site), which can in turn revive cravings, etc. You can use Knox unflavored gelatin with some Mio (or other stevia/sucralose sweetener) and get in some cheap collagen with no aspartame.

Avoid aspartame. Does that Jello have aspartame in it? I think the pancreas reacts to it like it does to sugar, and we are resting the pancreas in phase 1.

Oh...Yes....What LizRR says!
