Here is a healthy home made, energy drink recipe to give you a boost during the day and one that can substitute any of those nasty chemical laden energy drinks that are on the market.
You can make this into a big iced tea mixture or to keep you warm in winter you can heat it up and have hot.
1. Brew all of the tea bags in a big container of hot water for 15 minutes so that it is nice and strong
2. Pour into a large container that can hold 1 – 2 litres of filtered water
3. Add some drops of stevia to sweeten to taste
Once your energy mixture is brewed, you add half a glass of the brew to half a glass of coconut water for drinking. If you are having it hot you add half a cup of brew to half a cup of hot water.
This is actually a delicious and truly healthy energy drink instead of the chemical-laden energy drinks that are on the market.
The green, white, and yerba mate teas contain a small dose of caffeine along with a diverse mixture of powerful antioxidants and synergistic phytochemicals. Plus, the coconut water is a rich source of electrolytes and offer a variety of vitamins and minerals.
Coconut water is known to be a good instant energy source, and also contains a small dose of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are healthy fats that are readily used for energy and also aid your immune system.
So enjoy this natural healthy energy drink, knowing that you’re doing your body good instead of filling it with chemicals from normal store-bought energy drinks.
