Protein fluff is the low-carb, high-protein fitness recipe you've been missing from your diet.

If you haven't tried protein fluff before, you're missing out. It's the low-carb, high-protein dessert recipe that's been making its way around the fitness community for years – great for a super-filling weight-loss snack.

Protein fluff is simply made from your favourite protein powder mixed with a splash of milk or soda (and a few optional extras if you're feeling fancy), whisked up to a monstrous volume to keep you full for hours.

Check out our favourite protein fluff recipes below, and don't forget to check out more delicious fitness recipes.

1. Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Fluff

  • 1 scoop (25g) Vanilla Micellar Casein (casein protein makes for an ultra-creamy texture, but you can use whey or vegan protein powders, too)
  • 5g Xanthan Gum (your fluff will still work without this ingredient, but xanthan gum makes your fluff super creamy)
  • 280ml diet cream soda

Optional toppings:

  • Ice cream wafer
  • 99 flake


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the micellar casein and xanthan gum and mix.

2. Next, add one third of the diet cream soda and whisk for 2-3 minutes using an electric whisk. It's really important that you use an electric whisk here (you'll be whisking for an eternity if you do it by hand).

3. Gradually pour in the remaining soda whilst whisking. Whisk for around 10 minutes in total and watch your fluff quadruple in size. Stick with it – it will grow!

4. Add a wafer and a flake, or your favourite toppings, or just spoon straight out of the bowl.
