Protein Fluff is Bro Treat 101. I’d read recipes for this treat on nearly every bodybuilding website. But I avoided it for years, thinking that the concoction was likely some sad dessert devised by people who’d been eating chicken and protein powder for too many years to remember real dessert.
But I finally gave it a whirl. Here’s the thing. It’s not going to give you the same feeling as a decadent mousse. But it’s yummy. It’s insanely filling. And it provides a wallop of protein.
I’ve read plenty of recipes. Many call for casein and xantham gum. But I didn’t have those, and I’m too lazy to go to the store. So I used whey protein and an egg white in my mix. The result was fluffy and wonderful.
I think eating it straight out of the mixing bowl is completely cool. I won’t judge you. But if you stick the fluff into the freezer for 15 minutes you might enjoy it more. I wanted it to be cold.
You can use nearly any fruit – but some fruits are sweeter than others, so when you blend your concoction before whipping, consider adding some stevia or other sweetener. Want to make it? Read on for the recipe.
- 1 large egg white
- 70 ml(s) Skim Milk
- 115.00 g, Strawberries, frozen
- 1 tsp Stevia
- 20 g Whey Protein Isolate (I used True Nutrition strawberry flavor but vanilla would be great too)
- 1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
- Use a blender to blend all the ingredients. Pour into a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Blend until very, very fluffy. (See notes).
- Eat right away, or freeze for 15-20 minutes.
- You could use a hand mixer - itl'l just take longer. Most standard recipes indicate whipping for 8-10 minutes, but my powerful stand mixer got the job done in under 3 minutes.
- This is a half recipe from what is typically suggested. If you're extra hungry or a very big dude, you may double it and it'll fit into your bowl. This serving size is more than enough to fill me up.
