I am not a big fan of energy drinks but I did come across a recipe from a book I was reading on last month and wanted to share this drink recipe for you. One of the reasons I like this recipe is the fact that its healthy and all natural. I have this drink once a day because it gives me energy and it’s very delicious. The other benefit of this drink is that it can be detoxifying for your liver and digestive system. If you drink this in the morning you will get your digestion and metabolism going. That also means you can burn more fat too, the overall drink can actually get your body going and more tasty than you popping an energy drink like the red bull. While its great any time of the day I prefer to pop this in in the morning, wakes me up very good… well I have it after i have my coffee LOL but that is drink I enjoy like a treat!
Here is the recipe as follows:
1 Lemon ( a small works fine, if you get a large one, you can use just hald of it)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper ( more or less depending on your taste)
a packet of calorie free sweetener to taste ( I used sweet and low but any of the packets will do)
Agave nectar ( a raw, honey-like sweetener) to taste
2 cups of water
Use a lemon squeezer to extract the juice form the lemon. I use my hand to squeeze it all. Mix all the ingredients together. Mix well and drink. I tend to add a few cubes of ice to make it cold for myself but its delicious. The best part is that you are blending it to your taste so experiment with it until you find it to your liking. Enjoy!
