Green tea is fantastic for your health and your body. However, it is not all that fun to drink. I find it has a pretty potent taste. I drink it; but, just really don’t enjoy it all that much.
So, I invented a new way to get your green tea intake – green tea Jell-O bites! Not only do these little gummies taste better than a cup of hot tea – they have a subtle sweetness from the agave nectar (that you will add to your mixture.)
Just pop about 5 bites in your mouth in the morning or night, and there you have it – an instant healthy treat and a daily dose of antioxidants that is gluten free, low fat and disease fighting!
You will need: 1 packet of Knox Gelatin (has 4 sleeves in it), 3 cups of boiling water (tea induced), 1 cup of cool water (tea induced) and 2 heaping tbsp. of agave nectar.
First, boil your 3 cup of water over the stove. Once the pot is boiling, seep in 4 green tea bags. I used pomegranate green tea. It gave it a nice fruity flavor. Let these tea bags set in the boiling pot for about 3 or 4 minutes.
While, the tea is in the boiling pot in the stove, pop a mug the size of 1 cup into the microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Take out and put a tea bag in this hot cup. Let cool. I put about 3 or 4 ice cubes into the cup as well to cool it quickly.
Next, dump your 4 gelatin packets into the hot mixture and stir. Gradually add your cool green tea cup to the hot mixture. Use a big spoon to stir; making sure the gelatin is all dissolved. Add in your 2 tbsp of agave nectar! Stir again.
Pour mixture into a tray. I used a clear one used for casseroles and set in the fridge for about 2 hours or until the gel is thick. Cut into cube with a knife and enjoy!
