1. Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Fluff
- 1 scoop Vanilla Slow-Release Casein – Casein protein makes for an ultra-creamy texture, but you can use whey or vegan protein powders, too.
- 1 tbsp Xanthan Gum – Your fluff will still work without this ingredient, but xanthan gum makes your fluff super creamy.
- 1 fl oz diet cream soda
- Ice cream wafer
- Chocolate chips or a small bar of candy
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 your favorite toppings, or just spoon straight out of the bowl.
Try this recipe for a super-filling, tasty breakfast that’ll keep you going until lunch time.

3. Protein Fluff Layer Dessert
- 15 oreos
Protein pudding layer:
- 2 cups chocolate pudding (of choice)
- 34 fl oz milk (of choice)
- 17 fl oz diet cream soda or milk (of choice)
- 2 scoops Vanilla Slow-Release Casein (we find the super-fine texture of casein protein powder makes a really creamy fluff, but it will still work if you use your favorite protein powder instead)
Chocolate sauce layer:
- 1/2 cup Almond Butter or Peanut Butter
- 6 tbsp. Maple Syrup
- 3 tbsp. Cacao Powder
- 1.7 fl oz milk (of choice)
1. First, crumble half of the cookies and drop them into a large glass serving dish as the first layer of your dessert.
2. Next, make up the protein pudding. In a large bowl, mix some powder pudding with milk until it reaches a smooth, thick consistency. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.
3. While your waiting, make the protein fluff. Pour the protein powder into a large mixing bowl. Add one third of the diet cream soda or milk and whisk on high for 2-3 minutes using an electric whisk. It’s important to use an electric whisk to make protein fluff – you’ll be whisking for hours if you don’t! Gradually pour in the remaining soda/milk whilst whisking. Whisk for around 8-10 minutes in total and watch your fluff quadruple in size. Set aside.
4. Once the protein dessert and fluff layers are ready, spread half of the fluff on top of the crumbled cookie layer.
5. For the next layer, blend the nut butter, syrup, milk and cacao powder using a blender, then spoon on top of the protein fluff layer. Add a little more milk to thin the chocolate sauce if necessary.
6. Next, spread half of the protein dessert on top of the chocolate sauce layer.
7. Now line up whole biscuits around the edge of the trifle glass.
8. Spread on the remaining protein dessert, then the remaining fluff.
9. Top with the remaining crumbled biscuits.
