Flyte Drink Review

I always was against energy drinks. Being all about health I do prefer having a good sleep schedule to ingesting caffeine or anything else that boosts my energy levels. I was recently introduced to Flyte, and given that they only contain natural ingredients and are made of 100% organic ingredients (Green Coffee, Maca Root, Griffonia, Schizandra), I decided to give it a go. They come in three flavours: Green Mango, Citrus lemon and Red Berries. My favourite taste was Green Mango, strongly reminded me of Vibovit vitamin sachets, they were all the rage in the early 90’s in Poland – not sure if anywhere else?

What’s good about Flyte:

  • No artificially possessed taurine
  • No artificial sweeteners
  • Sugar-free
  • Does not give you dizziness
  • Boosts up your metabolism! Green Coffee, right?
  • I really liked the taste, but this is subjective
  • It contains Maca Root which has a positive effect on hormone balance and is very rich in calcium.

The nays:

  • It’s fizzy. Not everyone can drink fizzy drinks, and it would be great if Flyte could have done a non-fizzy version.

Overall, I am happy that there’s a healthy energy drink on the market, but dear peeps, make sure not to overdose – it’s still caffeine and loads of it are always harmful.

Gluten Free Low Carb Dessert

Today I decided to share with you a recipe which my mum created by a mistake 🙂

This is a great snack for everyone, it’s sugar-free, gluten free, and can be vegan if you swap honey with agave.

Let’s get into it:

Ingredients:

-Beans. I used black beans, 500g. You can use any beans you want, they can be canned or not. If you choose the dry version, remember to soak them in water overnight and then boil for 40 minutes.

-Honey/Agave/Maple Syrup .3 tbsp

-Raisins. Half a cup.

-Orange skin. 1 Tbsp.

-Almond Milk. 4tbsp.

-Cooking chocolate. I used dark chocolate which is vegan. 60g.

-Shredded coconut or almond flour. Up to you!

-Cinnamon. 1/2 Tsp.

-Nutmeg

-Vanilla extract 1tbsp.

 

When the beans finished boiling, pour the water out and add 60g of cooking chocolate, it will melt. If you are using canned beans you have to grind the chocolate. When the chocolate is melted, add a little bit of almond milk, 4tbsp should be enough, and blend the beans until you have a smooth paste. Then add all other ingredients except shredded coconut.

When everything is nicely smooth, form little balls and then toss them in shredded coconut. Voila, you have your low carb, high in protein snack!

If you wish to see a tutorial for that kind of photography, let me know! I know I am not a professional photographer but I think these pics are not that bad for my canon 1200d 🙂 I thought I need a full frame or a very expensive lens. Fortunately, completely opposite!
