Iced Tea and Jelly Slice

17 Aug

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!! This w/e could not come soon enough..

This is just a mini-post, I’ll be sending out the usual post tomorrow, but I wanted to tell you about these recipes!

Latest obsession – BCAA Jelly!!

Serves 1-3

2 scoops BCAA powder (I have Scivation Xtend Raspberry Blue and Watermelon Madness and both are delicious!!)

1&1/2 tbsp unflavoured gelatine

500mL cold water

100mL hot water

Mix the bcaas in with the cold water (easiest in a shaker) and blend well

Separately, mix the gelatine and hot water until the gelatine is dissolved (this smells really bad…)

Combine gelatine with the bcaa mixture and mix well

Pour into container(s) and place in the fridge until set!! Tastes awesome and is perfect for an inbetween-meal snack 🙂

Thanks to the discovery of this guilt-free jelly, I’ve decided to try making a healthy version of a jelly slice!!

First attempt of Protein Jelly Slice

Serves 16

Layer 1:

3/4 cup ground oats

~2tbsp coconut butter

Mix (with your hands if you like :)) the oats and butter, then flatten into the bottom of a high-sided baking pan

Layer 2:

2 tbsp unflavoured gelatine

14 serves Stevia

1 tsp salt

2 eggs (beaten)

1 cup milk (I used almond milk)

3 cups low fat cottage cheese

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 cup no fat Greek yoghurt

Mix the gelatine and Stevia, add eggs and milk.

Cook on top of a stove until mixtures has thickened up a bit

Remove from heat and allow to cool before putting the mixture in the blender

Add cottage cheese, vanilla, and Greek yoghurt, and mix until smooth

Pour on top of layer 1, then put in the fridge to set (takes several hours)

Layer 3:

1 scoop Scivation Xtend Watermelon Madness BCAA

3 tsp unflavoured gelatine

250mL cold water

50mL hot water

BCAA + cold water, then gelatine + hot water, then both together

Pour over cheesecake layer, then put in the fridge again!!

Ok so this tastes awesome!! Was a little bit sloppy though; I think next time I will half the amount of cheesecake layer (layer 2).

And finally, other Jamie Eason foodies and I were talking this week about how to make green tea tolerable. It’s so high in antioxidants (anti-cancer) but I just can’t stand the taste. Someone suggested this and I made it and it’s surprisingly good!!

Lemon and Mint Iced Tea

Serves 2

2 green tea bags

500mL water

1/4 lemon

Handful of mint

2-3 serves Stevia

Boil the water and allow to cool a bit (until it’s 85 degrees to be specific..)

Throw 2 green tea bags in and allow them to brew for 2 minutes

Slice the 1/4 lemon, then throw that, the mint, and the Stevia into the green tea mix

Leave it in the fridge to cool (I waited until it was completely cooled down)

Drink!! Would be even more delicious with some ice cubes haha so refreshing!! PS my boyfriend warned me it’s not a pretty picture, but I don’t have any big beautiful glasses to show off the iced tea – trust me, it tastes better than it looks!!

I’ll report back tomorrow with next week’s food plan!! x
