THE TRIAL AND ERROR THAT WENT INTO THIS. 😱
Seriously guys, I don’t think I’ve ever tested a recipe more times.
My standards were high though. A vegan version of protein fluff would need to mimic the texture of my tried and true whey/casein based fluff recipes (cake pop, chocolate cake, peanut butter, caramel apple)
And I finally did it!
A million thanks to my roommate, Emma, who let me use her vegan protein powders before I caved & bought my own. 😂
(I wasn’t sure I would like the taste of vegan protein… but it’s kind of addictive in a savory way. Like how oatmeal is savory. If that makes sense.)
I CANNOT guarantee the same results if you do not follow my recipe to the letter.
I personally only tried PE Science Vegan Protein, because well, my vegan roommate had already tested a bunch out and told me it was the best.
I also added Protein Cookie Butter’s Vegan Brownie Batter flavor. My first versions I used black cocoa powder, but something about chocolate/cocoa powder doesn’t “fluff” well. This brownie cookie butter (it’s a kind of protein powder too) fluffs a lot better & helps to nail the chocolate flavor!
(I’m not affiliated with either company, nor do I have any discount codes for either of them!)
The xanthan gum is a non negotiable as well to mimic the texture of true fluff!
Now vegan fluff doesn’t “grow” as much as a real protein fluff does, but hey, it filled up my freezer bowl & tastes just like a normal fluff (but veganized ofc!)
If you make this I would LOVE to hear what you think! Tag me & shoot me a message on instagram ❤️
