So recently I discovered this thread and found a recipe for fluff that works great. I don't care much for the one at the top of the thread but the one by cumminslifter works amazing. I have since become obsessed and generally eat a bowl or two of fluff a day while cutting. It FILLS YOU UP! I never don't finish food. It just doesn't happen. I am the always hungry guy when cutting. This recipe changed that. I go to bed satiated every night! I have since made several variations of the base recipe.

For note the base recipe is 20 grams of casein protein powder (I use ON vanilla) 6 grams xanthan gum (I got mine off amazon) and 12 oz or liquid. My go to liquid is A&W diet cream soda. Mix together in a big bowl for 10-15 minutes using a hand mixer or stand mixer if you have one. My 10 dollar walmart mixer works great!

Just those 3 ingredients make a decently tasty fluff: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-pN6V7mU9QoM/Ucxm0SqYbTI/AAAAAAAABLM/MJiajcDidfA/w560-h747-no/IMG_20130525_220702.jpg

Adding 2 tbsp of PB2 made a nice peanut butter fluff (It also fluffed up more. The green bowl is about 50% larger then the blue bowl):https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-qZP1vtcgKQk/UcxnBHlC0DI/AAAAAAAABLc/2cyDoZgKgiw/w560-h747-no/IMG_20130531_163145.jpg

Red Velvet fluff was made by squirting 2 squirts of zero calorie giant eagle brand drink mix (similar to Mio) fruit punch flavor and 1/2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-EIIVGEAS-ck/Ucxm8OWGarI/AAAAAAAABLU/cf8XWQAPMTI/w560-h747-no/IMG_20130527_172039.jpg

Shamrock fluff was made by adding 1/2 tsp mint extract, 1/2 tbsp of cocoa powder, and green food coloring (this is topped with walden farms zero calorie chocolate sauce): https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-A8VGqEUery8/UcxnFOzs-uI/AAAAAAAABLk/6__JJZMGa8M/w560-h747-no/IMG_20130611_162032.jpg

I found that adding in 1 serving of jello sugar free fat free pudding mix makes it fluff MUCH larger. Also adding fruit works too. Here is blueberry cheesecake fluff. It's simply the base recipe with 1 cup blueberries and 1 serving cheesecake jello mix: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1fLoJVhbSck/UcxnJ9axHnI/AAAAAAAABLs/ShSvqKq7ai4/w560-h747-no/IMG_20130612_214612.jpg

The green bowl in the pictures is a pretty big bowl. It sometimes looks smaller then it is in the pictures.

Some other variants that I don't have pics of:

Creamsicle fluff: Base recipe + 3 grams orange early rise drink mix (walmart) and 1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate strawberry fluff: Base recipe + 1 serving SS/FF chocolate jello pudding mix + 1 cup strawberries.

Pumpkin pie Fluff (my favorite): Base recipe + 1/2 cup canned pumpkin + 1 tsp vanilla extract + 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice.


Tips: Start by adding 1/2 the can of soda then slowly add more as you blend.
The longer you blend, the more it will fluff. I usually blend 10 minutes but 15 makes a much larger yield.
Add fruit towards the end of the fluffing process. It will increase the volume significantly. If you use frozen fruit, at least have it somewhat thawed.
Fluff does not save/store well at all. It defluffs over time. I have also had no luck at freezing mine.
Whey protein will work but the yield will be greatly reduced.

Looks good man, but wouldn't it have made more sense to put this in the fluff thread?
