Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - Glutamine Jello, Lemon!

If you've been around awhile, you know that I'm a big sucker for jello. Soft jello, firm jello, medium jello... I just love it! With the summer heat in full swing (112 today), and strict competition diet, cool-me-down-treats are few and far between... except for my Glutamine Jello. That, my friends, I can have whenever I want! In any flavor I want! And so can you! Today's version is Lemon... maybe it's the heat, but I crave lemon (and ginger, weird) so I whipped up this and have been digging out spoonfuls pretty much every time I walk by the fridge ;-) If you've got room in your diet, you can add a sweetener and/or top it with whipped cream. Not gonna lie... this is good stuff ;-)

Lemon Glutamine Jello
Chelle Stafford
makes 4 servings

4 packets Knox Gelatin, Unflavored
1 cup cold water
juice of 1 lemon
3 cups water, boiling
4 scoops Champion Performance Power Glutamine (it's unflavored)
1/2 to 1 tsp lemon extract (to taste)

Juice 1 lemon and add to measuring cup. Add water to fill up to 1-cup line.
Add lemon extract.
Mix in glutamine and stir well, then chill. (I put mine in the freezer for 5-10 minutes).
Once chilled, place in medium bowl and sprinkle gelatin over the top. Allow to sit 1 minute.
Bring 3 cups water to boil, then add to chilled mixture, stirring constantly until all gelatin is dissolved (about 5 minutes).
Pour into glass loaf pan or individual ramekins.
Refrigerate until solidified, about 3 hours.

TIP: eliminate the lemon juice and replace the lemon extract with any flavor of choice.
Yep, that's my big bowl of jello sitting on my lap. ;-)

  1. Jello is normally sweet, but there is no sugar or substitutes in your recipe. Is this bitter or flavourless, kind of like lemon water.
