🍫𝗖𝗵𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗖𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝘁𝗲𝗶𝗻 𝗙𝗹𝘂𝗳𝗳🍰 . The way I’ve been making my chocolate fluff has changed a bit over the last month! @flexibledieting4lyfe gave me the idea to do half cake pop protein half chocolate and I LOVE the added cake flavor. Lately I’ve been using @hiitnutrition black cocoa powder & the Oreo flavor that it gives the fluff is 🤤! You guys know from my stories that I make this almost every single night, it’s filling, has tons of protein, and the base is so low in macros I get to have fun with the toppings! It’s perfect for prep 🤩 . 𝗠𝗮𝗰𝗿𝗼𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗮𝘀𝗲: 202 cals 26.7P/2.8F/17.4C 𝗠𝗮𝗰𝗿𝗼𝘀 𝘄/ 𝘁𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀: 467cals 40.6P/17.1F/42.7C . 💜𝗜𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗮𝘀𝗲: —200-250g ice cubes (I always use ~230) —60g almond milk —16g cake pop @pescience protein powder —16g chocolate cupcake @pescience protein powder —10g @hiitnutrition black cocoa powder* —8g Jello chocolate sugar free pudding powder —cake batter extract (a generous drizzle 😋) —~30g skinny syrup. Tonight I used birthday cake flavor. 𝗧𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 for the bowl shown: —30g Love At First Bite Butter from  @official_allamericanbutter (this is a February only raspberry flavor, grab it before its gone!) 𝗰𝗼𝗱𝗲: 𝗲𝗺𝘆𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗳𝗶𝘁 to save! —10g Chocolate PB2 —12g Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch —8g Chocolate Toast Crunch . 👩🏼‍🍳𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀: 1. In a food processor blend ice until it reaches snow consistency. 2. Add the other ingredients (almond milk, protein, pudding mix, cake batter extract, sweetener etc) 3. Blend for at least 3 minutes total, stopping once to scrape the sides. I do 3-6 minutes. 6. Place in a bowl & freeze for 30 -60 minutes 7. Add toppings just before serving 😋 . *Black cocoa powder is NOT the same as Hershey’s Special Dark. . . . . #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #fiteats #healthyfood #iifymrecipes #proteinsnack #weightlosstips #foodie #highprotein #fitnessfood #flexibledieting #macrofriendlydessert #macrofriendly #iifym #caloriecounting #proteintreats #fitnessjourney #dietfood #proteinfluff #fitnessfoodie #proteinpacked #healthyfoodporn #healthyrecipeshare #gymdiet #fitfam #weightlossrecipes

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!

SWEETENER: 

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!
