Answer

You can change it programmatically using ColorFilter.

//get the drawable
Drawable myFabSrc = getResources().getDrawable(android.R.drawable.ic_input_add);
//copy it in a new one
Drawable willBeWhite = myFabSrc.getConstantState().newDrawable();
//set the color filter, you can use also Mode.SRC_ATOP
willBeWhite.mutate().setColorFilter(Color.WHITE, PorterDuff.Mode.MULTIPLY);
//set it to your fab button initialized before
myFabName.setImageDrawable(willBeWhite);
