We all know the importance of getting in our branch chained amino acids throughout the day, so why not mix things up and utilise this simple recipe to add a bit more fun and creativity into your diet!

I like to create BCAA ice cubes, with the idea stemming from to iced coffee, I find that when infused with ice, it seems to enhance the flavour of your favourite BCAA supplement, especially in this recent summer heat!

You can keep these ice cubes in the freezer and add them to any beverage of your choice for that quick and easy BCAA fix!


2 Scoops XL Nutrition XTRA BCAA – Watermelon

500ml Water


Simply mix two scoops of your BCAA powder with 400ml of water in a shaker cup, then pour into an ice cube mould.

Then leave to rest in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.

What is the importance of BCAA’s? And why should we be spending our money on such products?

Branch Chain Amino Acids or the building blocks of protein, they also help with muscle growth, post workout fatigue, muscle recovery and endurance.

Additionally, these products may also help reduce cravings for sweets and are awesome to sip on at night if a sugary craving hits because this particular BCAA’s tastes like liquid watermelon, which is ideal when you’re on a calorie restricted diet.
