Subject: Looking for A Low Carb bread made with gelatin
I am a low carb  eater, I control my blood sugars and BP by eating low carbs.  
There used to be a low carb bread made with gelatin and whey powder.  

Can you help?


Hi Debbie,

I couldnít find a low carb bread recipe with gelatin and whey powder. It doesnít seem to be a common combination in a low carb bread recipe. Was the bread also gluten-free? Was it white bread? Any yeast? Bread machine?

Iíll post your request on my site for input from other readers. In the meantime, you might find a recipe that you like here:

Thank you for trying.  It was a white bread and dates back about 11 or so years. 

Orange Julius with Pudding Mix

Subject: Old Orange Julius Recipe.....

Hello.  At least 40 years ago, while living in the northeast, I came across 
a recipe printed in a newspaper, for Orange Julius as a copy for what was 
then so popular in shopping malls.  This recipe used vanilla instant pudding 
for both flavor and frothiness. I've been searching forever and can't find 
anything even similar. I'm hoping you can help.  
Thanks a million!  Have a wonderful day.



Hello Sandy,

See below.


Orange Julius

1 qt. orange juice concentrate
1 pkg. vanilla pudding (not instant)
1 envelope Dream Whip
Crushed ice

Blend juice, pudding and Dream Whip in blender until well blended and frothy.  
Add ice until mixture is desired consistency.    
For Strawberry Julius:  use 1 (10 ounce package) frozen sliced strawberries.  
Orange Julius

1 qt. orange juice
1 egg white
Dash lemon juice
Few drops vanilla
1 sm. pkg. vanilla pudding (not instant)

Blend in blender and add ice. 
Orange Julius

1 can (6 oz.) frozen orange juice
2 tbsp. instant vanilla pudding
1/2 c. powdered milk
1 qt. water
6 ice cubes

  Mix or adjust above ingredients to suit your taste.  In blender combine all 
ingredients.  Serve immediately. 

Canadian Beavertails

Canadian Beavertails

1/2 cup warm water
5 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 pinch of white sugar
1 cup of warm milk
1/3 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
5 cups whole wheat flour
1 quart of oil for frying
2 cups white sugar
touch of cinnamon


In a large bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water and the pinch of sugar. 
Let stand until it is a slightly foamy (approximately 5 minutes). Then add 
the other 1/3 cup of sugar, milk, vanilla, eggs, oil and salt. Stir it all 
until it is smooth. Mix in about half of the flour and continue stirring it. 
Gradually add more flour.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface when it is firm enough. Knead for 
approximately 6-8 minutes. Add more flour if you need it to form a firm 
elastic dough. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover.

Let dough sit covered until it rises and doubles (approximately 35-45 minutes). 
Lightly deflate the dough and pinch off a piece the size of a golf ball. On 
a floured surface use a rolling pin to roll out the small ball of dough into 
an oval shape. Put it aside and cover it with a tea towel while you continue 
to do the same with the remaining dough.

Heat approximately 4 inches of oil in either a deep-fryer (375 degrees) 
or a wok or a Dutch oven. Before placing the flattened dough
into the oil, stretch them into ovals and thin them and enlarge them 
(to resemble the tail). Place the tails in the oil one (or two) 
at a time. Fry in the oil, turn them once until the tails are a deep brown. 
This process usually takes about 1 to 2 minutes per side. 
Carefully remove the tail from the oil and let it drain on a paper towel. 
Place left over sugar in a large bowl and add the cinnamon. 
Toss the beaver tail into the bowl while it is still hot. Shake off any 
extra sugar and cinnamon mixture.

You can also add another topping of your choice (i.e. chocolate sauce, jam, 
garlic, cheese).
