Pineapple Protein Fluff



Pineapple Protein Fluff

What’s like a mixture between ice cream and whipped cream and a cloud?  This Protein Pineapple Fluff.
People. You NEED this Pineapple Fluff in your life! 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, calorie friendly, 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! 
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 - 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 2-3 times 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 to instantly quell those cravings.
Fluffy Tips and Tricks
You can use various fruits, nuts, and spices for toppings. Try coconut, seeds, cocoa, or fresh fruit for toppings, but you cannot make the actual fluff with fresh fruit, it HAS to be frozen. If they are not frozen, you are in for a smoothie, not fluff!
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.
This dessert is one of my go to favorites, this creation truly is magical. You will be amazed when you see how much volume you get from so little ingredients. If you haven’t tried it, you really must.
Imagine a cross between cool whip and ice cream texture wise and the “fluff”base is so low calorie you can have fun adding toppings.
