Energy drinks may provide as much energy as caffeine soft drinks and may be able to give you a burst of instant energy. Sadly though most energy drinks on the market provide a lower amount of energy than a cup of coffee or a can of soda, lacking nutritional value. On the other hand, a natural energy drink (smoothie) provides an instant energy boost along with amazing nutritional benefits.
Things You'll Need
Commercial energy drinks offer a promise of a quick boost but many don’t deliver a real solution for a lack of energy. Some are loaded with caffeine which cranks up the adrenal gland, and once tapped out; all the caffeine in the world won’t give you more energy. While it is true that they can trigger an adrenaline rush, most of the high wire energy they produce can leave you exhausted and eventually wears off.
A better way to boost your energy is by means of a natural energy drink, these build your body with the necessary nutrients for a longer lasting and more healthful lift.
Use your blender to prepare this Smoothie, it will provide you with the needed carbohydrates (found in milk, yogurt, natural fruit sweetener and whole grains) fat (found in flaxseed, nuts and milk) and protein (found in yogurt, nut butter, soy milk) for a better way to boost your energy.
