Servings 1


  • 1 medium banana, sliced, frozen
  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 1 scoop whey protein powder
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice or water
  • Flavored extracts or spices for added taste optional


  • In a food processor, combine the frozen banana slices, protein powder, milk and any flavored extracts or spices of your choice.
    Process until they are smooth, creamy and resemble the texture of soft-serve ice cream. This may take a few minutes, and you may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the food processor to ensure all the ingredients are well incorporated.
    The secret to the fluffiest protein fluff is to blend the ingredients for at least 3-5 minutes (even longer) - the longer the better so more air gets incorporated into the mixture which adds additional fluff.
    Transfer the frozen protein fluff to a bowl or dessert glass. You can enjoy it immediately for a soft-serve consistency, or freeze it for an additional 30 minutes for a firmer texture.
    Add toppings such as granola, shredded coconut, or a drizzle of nut butter to enhance the flavor and presentation.


Fluffy Tips and Tricks
You can use various fruits, nuts, and spices for toppings. Try coconut, seeds, cocoa, or fresh fruit!
Though berries are the best fruit to fluff, frozen banana slices come in at a close second. You can also use frozen pineapple, mango, peaches or frozen apples as your base.
You will need to use a whey protein powder. Most vegetarian and vegan protein powders do not fluff, so please don't try to fluff your pea protein, brown rice protein, or hemp protein.
From Mush To Fluff
What makes protein fluff so special is that by blending just a few ingredients, you create what amounts to ice cream! In fact, if you were to stop right there, you could just eat it like ice cream inside a (protein) cone.
To turn it into proper fluff though, whisk it for a good 5-8 minutes. That's where the magic happens. Your ice cream turns into full-blown fluff.
Although I do prefer protein powder without flavorings, you cannot really get away with a plain protein powder in this particular recipe.
It easier to make the fluff if the whey protein contains xantham gum (which flavored ones do). You do need a flavored protein powder.
If you do wish to use an unflavoured protein powder you can add xantham gum – ½ teaspoon per serving which will make your protein fluff stay fluffier longer and gain a thicker consistency. Using xanthan gum is optional.
Using other frozen vegetables or fruit
You can’t make Protein Fluff with fresh vegetables or fruit, it HAS to be frozen. If they are not frozen, you are in for a smoothie, not fluff.
What kind of vegetables can you use to make protein fluff? You can use frozen (cooked) cauliflower, frozen (cooked) sweet potato or butternut squash, or frozen carrots. You could also experiment with any other vegetable.
