hCG Bergamot Iced Tea Cocktail.

bermagot iced tea cocktail recipe

Ingredients

  • Stevia liquid to taste
  • 8 Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea bags
  • 2 lemons
  • Juice of fresh oranges
  • Ice

Instructions

  1. Start by making a simple syrup. Combine stevia and water and bring to a boil. When the mixture is clear, it is ready. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Bring 3 quarters of water to a boil. Add tea bags. Steep for about 3 minutes. It will be pretty dark. Cool completely.
  3. When both the tea and simple syrup are cool, pour in enough simple syrup until it as sweet as you like it. I usually start with half and go from there. As much as I love sweets, I do not like overly sweet tea. It is completely up to your taste as to how much stevia water you use.
  4. Pour some tea into a glass and add your freshly squeezed orange juice. I like lots of ice in my drink. And a squeeze of lemon if you like too.
  5. Cheers!

hCG Diet Spiced Chicken with Black Cumin Seeds

This shows just how under-rated Garam Masala is as a marinade, and illustrates beautifully the wonderful flavour of black cumin – make sure you use the true jeera kala, not nigella seeds. It’s an easy meal to put together at the end of a busy day, and if you don’t have any ground almond to provide a little thickening, just mix the garam masala with a little plain flour when you coat the chicken.

Ingredients
Serves: 3 

  1. 4 boned chicken thighs, trimmed no skin
  2. 1/4 teaspoon medium chilli flakes
  3. 1 teaspoon black cumin seeds
  4. 2 spring onions sliced
  5. 1 garlic clove crushed, or a pinch of garlic powder
  6. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  7. 1/4 cup tomato puree
  8. 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
  9. 1 teaspoon ground almonds
  10. 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
  11. 1 teaspoon fenugreek leaves

Directions

  1. Pat garam masala onto all sides of the chicken and marinate 30 minutes.
  2. Heat pan, dry roast black cumin seeds and chilli flakes for 1 minute.
  3. Add oil, spring onions, garlic and chicken, and brown chicken on both sides over high heat.
  4. Remove chicken to a plate, reduce heat and add tomato, yoghurt, salt, almonds and fenugreek leaves. Simmer, stirring, for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Return chicken and any juices to pan and simmer until cooked through.
  6. Serve with rice.
