6 Natural Homemade Energy Drinks

Most of us live in a fast-paced world where we are always busy and looking for ways to get the stamina we need to finish the day. Our new bread and butter is a beverage loaded with sugar and caffeine. Yet, these drinks will only give us a brief energy boost while straining our adrenal glands and potentially leading to serious long-term health problems.

Instead of always going for those drinks filled with chemicals and artificial sugars, a better alternative will be to go for natural energy drinks that we can make at home. In this article, let’s find out which are the best nutritional drinks that will allow us to fuel ourselves for the day without having to experience an energy crash.

1. Berry Matcha Mix

Matcha comes from green tea leaves that contain L-theanine and a slight amount of naturally occurring caffeine (less than coffee!), both of which have an energy-boosting property.
This ingredient helps to energize your metabolism by gently lifting you while berries, which contain natural sugars, will slowly release energy to keep you going throughout the day.

1 cup of water
1 cup of frozen berries
2 teaspoons of matcha powder
1 teaspoon of maple syrup/honey (optional)
Juice of 1 lemon/lime (optional)

Blend all the ingredients together.

2. Green Tea with Chia Seeds

Green tea provides gentle energy, and chia seeds are high in protein and good omega-3 fats, making for a long-lasting energy source. You can add a dash of honey for sweetness and get an extra energy kick.

1 cup of green tea
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 teaspoon of maple syrup/honey (optional)

Mix all the ingredients together.

3. Beat Tiredness with Beets

Beets are loaded with nitrates, which reduces the amount of oxygen needed to work the blood vessels and muscles. Combining beets, lemon juice, and apple will give you all the energy you need.

1 beetroot
1 apple
1 lemon
2 celery stalks (optional)

Juice all the ingredients and serve with ice.

4. Protein Booster

The ingredients in this concoction will give you the boost you need to power you up for the whole morning. A combination of protein, healthy fats, and slow-releasing sugars will allow a continuous and slow energy release.

¾ cup of coconut milk
½ a banana
1 tablespoon of protein powder
1 tablespoon of almond butter
¼ cup of coconut yogurt
½ cup of kale
½ tablespoon flax seeds (optional)
½ tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)

Blend all the ingredients and enjoy it first thing in the morning.

5. Spice It up With Turmeric

If you are looking for a warm drink without caffeine, but that will still power you up, look no further! This drink will energize you while nourishing your metabolism thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties of its ingredients.

2 cups of hot water
1 inch of fresh ginger
¼ teaspoon of turmeric
1 ½ teaspoon of honey
¼ teaspoon of ground cardamom
1 or 2 slices of lemon (optional)

Simmer the hot water in a small pan with the other ingredients for a few minutes. You can serve it with one or two slices of lemon.

6. Moroccan Mint Tea

The ingredients will refresh and rejuvenate you with cooling mint. Moreover, you will benefit from a good source of vitamin C thanks to the lemon in the recipe and the tea’s antioxidant properties.

1 cup brewed tea (cold) green tea or mint tea
1 cup cold water
1 glass of ice (optional)
1 freshly squeezed lemon
Several springs of fresh mint

Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker to blend them together. Shake well.
