I recently posted about my successful attempt at making protein fluff, however I confessed that I was unable to finish the volumous snack and hinted at the fact that I was disappointed in wasting.
Thankfully the freezer has come to the rescue because I have recently discovered the pleasure of frozen fluff.
It is difficult to describe the texture, but I suppose ‘chewy icecream’ would be the best selection of words to capture how this recipe turns our after it is frozen.
The difference of course being that it is not icecream it is an extremely high protein post workout snack…
…but you could have fooled me. If you had told me that this was some new freaky frozen yogurt specialty treat I never would have known that I was in fact eating some freaky frozen fitness food.
•2 tbsp whey protein powder (must be fat free)
•1 tbsp any protein powder
•1/2 cup cartoned egg whites
|•1/4 tsp Cream of Tar Tar (divided)
•1 tsp Xanthan Gum
•1 tsp powdered sweetner
•1/2 cup crushed frozen berries
1)Add egg whites and 1/8 tsp of cream of tar tar to mixing bowl and mix on high until stiff peaks form (around 2 min)
2)Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT for the crushed berries. Mix on high for 2 minutes. The peaks will collapse some.
3)Add crushed frozen berries. Mix on high for 3 more minutes.
4) Stick in the freezer and let freeze for 4 hours

|If you are looking for a way to introduce more protein into your diet this is it. It is practically all protein. Approximately 150 calories. Not very balanced though.|
|I enjoyed the taste of this protein fluff much more frozen.|
|The best way to describe the texture is chewy icecream|
This is the exact same recipe as Protein Fluff, except with the added 4th step.
The best part is that this doesn’t HAVE to be a post workout snack despite protein fluff being an excellent source of protein. It is also great as a pre-bedtime snack. Only after of course catching a glimpse of Venus!
I am currently reading The Age of Wonder by Richard Holmes and the chapter on William Herschel has sparked my interest in astronomy. Thus, I was drawn to this article when I was scrolling through Google News Science (yes, I do that) and am excited to try and find Venus after the sunset!
