     Coffee Icecream

     Coffee Icecream

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups whole coffee beans (decaf unless you want the caffeine in your ice cream)
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
    • 5 large egg yolks
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon finely ground coffee (press grinds through a fine mesh sieve)

    METHOD

    Heat the milk, sugar, whole coffee beans, salt, and 1/2 cup of the cream in a medium saucepan until it is quite warm and steamy, but not boiling. Once the mixture is warm, cover, remove from the heat, and let steep at room temperature for 1 hour.

    Reheat the milk and coffee mixture, on medium heat, until again hot and steamy (not boiling!). In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks together. Slowly pour the heated milk and coffee mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly so that the egg yolks are tempered by the warm milk, but not cooked by it. Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.

    Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof, flat-bottomed spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula so that you can run your finger across the coating and have the coating not run. This can take about 10 minutes.


    Pour the custard through the strainer and stir it into the cream. Press on the coffee beans in the strainer to extract as much of the coffee flavor as possible. Then discard the beans. Mix in the vanilla and finely ground coffee, and stir until cool.

     

    Anzac Biscuits

    Anzac Biscuits

    In honour of our National Day of Remembrance, why not try this Aussie favourite with your next cup of St Remio tea or coffee?

     

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup caster sugar
    • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
    • 150g unsalted butter, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons golden syrup or treacle
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons water
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda

     

    METHOD

    Preheat oven to 170C. Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine.

    In a small saucepan place the golden syrup and butter and stir over low heat until the butter has fully melted. Mix the bicarb soda with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and add to the golden syrup mixture. It will bubble whilst you are stirring together so remove from the heat.

    Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly.

    Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    St Remio Tea Time Series: Relax

    St Remio Tea Time Series: Relax

    Relax

    Life is busy. Between work commitments, family commitments, and the daily run around, time to ourselves is a rare commodity. In celebration of the St Remio nutraceutical Nespresso* tea range, we explore the idea of ‘Relaxation’ and give you some tips to gain control of your ‘you’ time!

    • Sip relaxation tea

    Instead of letting life’s stresses getting to you, why not get comfortable on the couch with a hot cup of relaxation tea. Beneficial because it includes ingredients such as orange zest (helping with insomnia), Hawthorn (helps to induce calm) and chamomile, you’ll be in a floaty state of bliss in no time.

     

    • Meditate

    Mediating doesn’t have to mean an escape to the mountains. 5 minutes of peace is sometimes all the body needs to relax, unwind and recharge. Find a quiet spot, close your eyes, concentrate on your breath and get in tune with yourself before you tackle the day ahead.

     

    • Talk to a friend

    When you’ve really got something on your mind, sometimes all it takes is talking through this with a friend. Sometimes we underestimate the power of listening, and it can take off a massive load when voicing your stress and concerns to a loved one. We get caught up in our lives and sometimes think we are alone, and this technique may be all it takes to remind us that life isn’t as hard as we sometimes work it up to be!

    • Treat yourself

    It may sound simple, but taking a moment to treat our bodies to some R&R can be just what it takes to get you off an anxiety ridden track. Massages are one of the best ways to find some ‘you’ time, and can be especially helpful to people who are constantly stressed, as our bodies and muscles take a lot of strain when you’re not feeling 100%.

     

    • Squeeze a stress ball

    Instead of strangling your co-worker on the next desk, your partner or your BFF, grab yourself a stress ball and let out all your frustrations. It’s an easy, affordable and non-drastic way to relieve all those tensions!

    New Year’s resolutions

    New Year’s resolutions

    January calls for a fresh new start, and in celebration of our nutraceutical tea range, featuring our Digest, De-bloat, Relax and Vitality capsules, we have come up with a few sure fire ways to kick start 2017 as healthy as ever.

    1)      Move! -  The more you move, the healthier you are. Walk, run, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Make this year about small decisions like this and you’ll get a big result- all while feeling great about yourself.

     

    2)      Nutraceutical tea- make smart decisions when it comes to what you put in your body, especially when it comes to liquids, as they tend to fall by the wayside. Nutraceutical teas have all kinds of benefits, helping you to relax, de-bloat, digest or gain just general wellness through vitality tea. See our range of St Remio tea’s and discover the benefits for yourself!

     

    3)      Meditation- take time to clear your head from all the unnecessary clutter we gain throughout the work week. Time to yourself is precious, and adds a sense of calm to your everyday. Meditation can be as simple as taking just 5 or 10 minutes a day to relax and unwind.

     

    4)      Sleep- Sleep is a big key to living a healthier and happier life! Not only does sleep guide weight loss, but also provides us with more energy, a better functioning body and a whole lot of happiness. As much as we say we love it, unfortunately not enough of us actually get enough! Aim for seven to eight hours a night- you’ll notice the difference.
