BCAA Green Gummy Jello Shots

Here's a guilt-free, pre-workout treat that not only satisfies your sweet tooth but gives you an energy boost too! This BCAA jello is such a clever way to fill your belly (Did I mention you can use a four-leaf clover mold for St. Patty's Day?) without putting a dent in your macros. To make the gummy version: Try mixing 3 tablespoons of gelatin with BCAA and ½ cup of water to make your own candy. Don't limit yourself to green! Use food coloring to make this sweet treat perfect for any holiday or party.
