Chocolate Dream Protein Fluff



Chocolate Dream Protein Fluff

What is it? Protein fluff is an awesome frozen, thick, "marshmallowy", airy light, pudding-type, ice cream like substance. It’s delicious, quite high in volume and high in protein.
It’s a calorie friendly recipe; rather low in both fat and carbohydrates – making it a satiating stand-alone dessert, breakfast or anytime snack. It’s also a great topping for things like pancakes or cheesecakes! 
And the best part is you only need 3 main ingredients to make it. With just a few ingredients, you can fill an entire salad bowl and find yourself sitting down with a soup spoon eating what looks like a calorific bomb of frozen decadence.
Warning: Once you try it, you can't stop making it. Your taste buds will LOVE it. It’s a healthy meal or snack to die for! And yet it's a low-calorie snack.
Protein fluff's filling and low-calorie nature is precisely what makes it a staple among many fitness people and dieters. It is also extremely easy to make and requires just three basic ingredients: milk, protein powder, fruit (frozen) or even vegetables - pretty much the same stuff you use in a protein shake or smoothie.
Protein ​​Fluff truly is the discovery of the century! From a few ingredients, you conjure up a super airy mousse. The amount will also be 2x as much as you started with, so this recipe is just magical!
Not only is it easy to whip up when you are feeling “munchy” but after-dinner is when the biggest chocolate cravings occur. Making this a “fix-all” protein recipe.

Fluffy Tips and Tricks
You can use various fruits, nuts, and spices for toppings. Try coconut, seeds, cocoa, fresh fruit, or nut or seed butter!
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.
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.
