Amanda's Kids' Lunch

Fluff for Lunch

Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.

No one likes to be surprised and delighted more than kids. Today I gave the asparagus and kale a rest, and turned to some iconic pantry staples: peanut butter, and more importantly, Marshmallow Fluff. Because I couldn't help myself, I did use wheaty bread (forgive me, young'uns!), and I layered in sliced banana for a third flavor. On the side, I packed yogurts. As you can see, they have divided brand allegiances.

This sounds awesome save for the fluff. YUCK! Even as a kid I was never a fan, heh.

Fluff is my favorite food. Can't have it in the house or I eat it with a (giant) spoon. Have the kids tried Siggi's yogurt? I am obsessed with the vanilla.

I love fluff. It's great on ice cream. It also makes great buttercream frosting. Target has the big tubs, fyi.

How do you mix it into buttercream? Intrigued.

From The Marshmallow Fluff Cookbook. This one's for quick buttercream:

One 7 1/2 ounce jar fluff
3 sticks unsalted butter, room temp

Nuke fluff 30 seconds in microwave. Scrape into bowl and whip until smooth. Add butter in pieces and whip until smooth.

But sometimes I just add a few spoonfuls to a basic confectioner's sugar frosting.

Is there a particular brand of marshmallow fluff you like or do you make your own?

I think the brand is Marshmallow Fluff, actually! It's the only one my grocery store carries.

I was always a big fan of Greek Gods brand greek yogurt when I was still eating dairy. I still buy the plain now for making tzatziki for my family on falafel night.

My old roommate and I used to eat peanut butter and fluff sandwiches and drink champagne on our birthdays, because... fluff. What's not to love?
