Chocolate Coconut “Fluff”

First of all, I want to thank everyone who took the time to check out  5 Low Carb, Home Made Snacks and requested this recipe! I am so excited that you all wanted to see this video made. When I first came up with the recipe, I  did not expect it to become as popular as it has. This recipe is low carb, gluten free, and can be dairy free depending on the protein powder you choose to use! The word spread about Coconut Fluff at our gym and now everyone there is making it and enjoying it, too! Clearly Coconut Fluff is to thank for my massive guns and accomplishments in the weight room. Coconut Fluff, as we call it in my house, has become a staple. We love to eat it for breakfast because it is super filling and keeps us going all morning long. It is loaded with saturated fats to provide long lasting energy. Not only does it do all of these amazing things for you but it taste incredible, too! It really is too good to be true. I serve this recipes to guests for dessert and they are always impressed with it. To be honest, it could not be any easier to make.

What you will need:

1 can coconut cream or full fat coconut milk drained

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup (1 scoop) chocolate protein powder (I used grass-fed whey protein sweetened with stevia)


Stevia extract (if you protein powder is not pre-sweetened)

Grated dark chocolate


It is best to mix the ingredients using either a hand or stand mixer. I prefer a stand mixer for this recipe. If you do not have either, a manual whisk will work though it may leave some clumps. Simply add the coconut cream, protein powder, and cocoa powder to your bowl and mix! It is so easy its coconuts.

Eat right away or refrigerate for a cooler, thicker cream. I prefer it refrigerated over night.

This recipe serves four. You can pipe it into dishes with a pastry bag or scoop it into bowls. It also makes a great “frosting” to finish off protein pancakes or grain free cakes with! Top with a little grated chocolate and you won’t even know what hit you. I would be willing to bet this would be your first time making this recipe but it would definitely not be your last.

I have made multiple variations of this recipe and they are all delicious! If you would like to see the recipes for any of my variations, let me know in the comments!

I was also lucky enough to have some helpers to clean my dishes for me. Dogs love coconut; just make sure to give it to them before adding the chocolate! (no dogs were harmed in the making of this video)

    Which brand of chocolate protein powder did you use? Looks like the Trader Joe’s one is kind of high in carbs. (I have to go somewhere else other than TJ?!) Thanks!

      Hi Jess!

      I know that the thought of having to shop anywhere else is daunting (especially if you’re as big of a TJ’s fan as I am!). I actually order my protein powders online from Specifically, I order their Grass-Fed Whey Protein Powder sweetened with stevia. This is the “natural” flavoring option. Hope this helps!

      Enjoy (:

      Hi Alyse,

      If it is not setting up for you, try storing it in the refrigerator over night. Then, drain the extra water that gather on top off before continuing the recipe. Depending on the temperature of your home, coconut cream can take different forms. I hope this help!
