The first time i tried making protein fluff/protein ice cream… it was so awful I THREW IT AWAY! Only this past week i decided to give this dessert a second try and my aim was to make the consistency more like ice cream and less like cool-whip.
June 2020 Update:
It’s been about 7 months since I’ve been making this flavor of fluff, so I’ve made a few adjustments:
- I use about 250g of ice now
- I dropped almond milk to 40mL instead of 60mL
- I don’t let the food processor blend for more than 3:30 seconds. YES, I time it. I started to get really painful bloating when I let it blend for a long time, but stopping it around 3:30 has kept all the painful bloating away!

Using PE Science protein is really a necessity for protein fluff as the casein in the whey/casein blend helps it to fluff up. You do not need to use xanthan gum or any substitutes if you are using PE Science.
However if you insist on using a whey protein powder, you will need to use xanthan gum (or not xanthan not guar) to help it fluff. Xanthan gum has been known to cause bloating!
I add in about 30g of Skinny Syrup. You can buy them online, on Amazon, or I recommend visiting your local Home Goods/Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Ross to get them for cheap!
