Here is a recipe for a homemade energy drink:
1. Make a big iced tea mixture using green tea, white tea, and yerba mate tea. Add a little fruit flavor, use 1 tea bag of raspberry or blueberry hibiscus tea, and then use 2-3 green and/or white tea bags, 2-3 yerba mate tea bags, and make a gallon container of iced tea. Use a small amount of stevia to lightly sweeten the batch of tea.
2. Buy a container of organic coconut water from a health food store, or buy fresh coconuts to obtain the coconut water from the inside.
3. For your healthy energy drink, mix half of a glass of the white/green/yerba mate iced tea mixture and fill the rest of the glass with coconut water.
This is actually a delicious and truly healthy energy drink instead of the chemical-laden crappy energy drinks that everybody is getting suckered into buying these days.
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, coconut water is a rich source of electrolytes and a diversity of vitamins and minerals, including as much potassium as a banana, but with only 1/3 the number of carbs and calories as a banana. Coconut water is known to provide a good instant energy source.
So enjoy this natural healthy energy drink, knowing that you’re doing your body good instead of filling it with chemicals with normal store-bought energy drinks.
