Ketogenic BCAA Lemon Curd

I don’t know about you, but I have been getting bored of the standard BCAA powder in a bottle of water. I like to spice my supplements up a little, so I figured…why not make something I can spread on my rice cakes, protein pancakes or toast before I set off to the gym. I found, by using Efectiv Amino Lean in a lemon curd recipe, you get all the benefits and the taste

 

Ingredients:

1/3 cup butter or vegan alternative

Juice of two lemons

1 tbsp lemon zest

5 scoops Efectiv Cloudy Lemonade Amino Lean (BCAA’s)

3 egg yolks

Optional: 10g chia seeds

 

Instructions:

  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter on low heat
  2. Mix in lemon juice, lemon zest, BCAA’s until fully dissolved and allow to simmer for 2-5 minutes
  3. Add in 3 yolks and whisk for ~1 minute until fully mixed in and curd becomes thickened (be careful not to overcook or your curd will turn into scrambled eggs (to each their own)
  4. Strain your curd (to get rid of any excess butter)
  5. Refridgerate for up to one month
  6. Enjoy on toast, rice cakes, tortillas, protein pancakes, etc! I topped my toast with chia seeds
