Protein Fluff Recipe!

I can't take any credit for this recipe for protein fluff whatsoever; this is a recipe that circulates around on a lot of bodybuilding websites, because its just such an awesome (and ingenious!) way to utilize protein powder. Believe it or not, sometimes even I get tired of all of the shakes, shakes, and more protein shakes. But I really wanted to share the recipe with you guys, just in case you haven't come across it before. So what is protein fluff? Protein fluff is a light, airy, creamy, delicious, frozen mousse-like concoction that is 100% clean! Its something akin to ice cream, frozen yogurt, or whipped cream. Want in on the frosty deliciousness? Here's how...

Delicious and nutritious!
Protein Fluff (serves 1)

1/4 Cup whey vanilla protein powder (this works with casein too--- the results are just a tad bit thicker)
1/4 Cup unsweetened almond milk (or your milk of choice)
1 Cup frozen fresh fruit (berries work very well due to the moisture content)

Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender. Once thoroughly mixed, whisk with an electric whisk for about 5 minutes. As you whisk the protein fluff, you'll see that the protein fluff will increase EXPONENTIALLY in volume! In the end, you'll have a heaping amount of delicious protein fluff. Whisk less for a more ice cream/frozen yogurt-like consistency, and whisk more for a more whipped cream-like consistency. You can add almost any frozen fruit you'd like--- raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are favorites in our house! Additionally, if you have a frozen popsicle maker, you can pour this creamy treat in, and you'll have delicious protein fluff popsicle treats once they're frozen! I love this recipe for a nighttime snack. Its a GREAT way to curb that sweet tooth when you'd love to just dive headfirst into a bowl of ice cream. Instead, you can nosh on this in lieu of those sugar and fat laden things, and get ALL of the frozen goodness with NONE of the guilt!

Enjoy guys!
