Confession time: I’ve got a huge sweet tooth. In fact, there’s nothing I’d love more than to let the little fat kid inside of me go crazy on some ice cream, chocolate and cake right about now. But, we all know how that’s gonna play out in a fat loss diet, right?
And that’s the thing: it’s so difficult to satisfy that love for all things awesome and sugary AND then still adhere to a diet protocol, right?
I hear ya. Even personal trainers want to indulge a little bit, too. And, we’ve already talked about the benefits of cheating on the diet from time to time. I totally believe that it is beneficial both psychologically and physiologically to break away occasionally. Now on the flip side, when we go overboard and have a nightly serving of Ben & Jerry’s, that becomes a problem that is soon evidenced on the scale and in our measurements.
So, we are left with a few choices:
1) Eat dessert and just sacrifice all goals and progress;
2) Don’t eat dessert and just hate life;
3) Find some healthier options that harness the best of BOTH worlds (my FAVORITE solution)
Enter the life-changing moment. The moment that you discover Protein Fluff.
It’s simple to make. Only calls for a few ingredients (protein powder, fruit and milk). It’s terribly delicious. And it fits right into your fat loss plans.
It really is a great way to cap off the night. And it’s one of the staples of my diet, especially when I’m really craving something sweet. I’ve shared this recipe with a few of my clients, and they find it is a perfect combination of awesome, sweet and healthy … and because of the protein, it’s actually quite filling.
Now, I’m not going to pretend to be the person that invented this stuff. You can use the power of Google to unlock about a million other recipes out there. But, I am more than happy to share MY recipe with you. It’s my way of paying it forward.
I’m kind like that.
So if you are ready to have your mind blown … behold … below is the recipe to I use to make protein fluff:
1. 2 scoops of protein powder (I use BioTrust Low-Carb because it mixes a little thicker which creates a nice pillowy texture. Casein protein and even plain whey work here, as well)
2. 1 cup of frozen blueberries (play around with the frozen fruit here, banana works well, too)
3. 1/4 cup of almond milk
How to make it:
1. Place your blueberries and protein powder in large mixing bowl and splash it with the almond milk. You’ll want to mash everything together really quick to get everything mixed initially and prevent a big mess once you hit it with the mixer.
2. Once mashed together, use a hand mixer to whip everything up. This should take about 3-4 minutes and you’ll notice the consistency of the mixture change from dense to light and airy – similar to that of whipped cream.
3. Toss it in the freezer for a few minutes to chill it.
It really is that simple.
For those tracking macros and calories, depending on the protein powder that you use here, you’re looking at the following breakdown:
~240 calories, 25 grams protein, 3 grams fat, 29 grams carbs
Boom goes the fat-burning, sweet-tooth-satisfying dynamite.
