Whether you are rushing out the door in the morning or taking a moment of peace, enhancing your beverages can give you a delicious, nutrition boost with minimal effort. With a few simple additions, you can prioritize your health and energy throughout the day with these healthy drinks for energy.

When your hands are full, it can be hard to think about meals and cooking.

I’ve found that enhancing my beverages is a great way to get a nutrition boost without taking much time, energy or clean up. If you are running to an appointment, out the door to work or school, or feeding the baby, you can still prioritize yourself with these healthy drinks for energy you can make easily at home.

I often laugh when I get to the end of my workday and have to clean up the assortment of glasses that have accumulated throughout the day!

Matcha

Matcha is a slow burning source of caffeine, released in the body at a gentle pace allowing for longer peak effects and mental clarity rather than the jittery spike and dependency of caffeinated coffee. L-theanine, a rare amino acid found in matcha, boosts mental clarity, focus and gives you a calm sense of energy.

Pausing mid-day for a matcha + chocolate break has become a beautiful ritual and momentary pause from the hustle and bustle of the day. 

When you need a boost, matcha is an energizing sip. Customize this Iced Vanilla Matcha Latte recipe to fit your desired taste. If I’m on-the-go, I’ll make mine in an insulated tumbler so it stays chilled for hours. 


Optional Add-Ins: Manuka Honey

This blend of medicinal mushrooms is a modern woman’s best friend to support balance, focus, calm and health. It will help you navigate the demands of life with a bit more ease and energy. If you feel frazzled or anxious in the morning or throughout the day, you’ll notice the biggest difference with this simple addition.

This rippled glass cup is the most fun for iced coffee!

Chlorophyll + Lemon Water

Such a refreshing way to start your morning—chlorophyll and lemon boosts liver and digestive function (a root cause approach to clear skin too), especially when consumed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Chlorophyll is the green pigment that enables plants to turn sunlight into energy through photosynthesis. Chlorophyll helps rid the body of wastes and toxins through the digestive and lymphatic system. It also boosts oxygen to the blood and brain giving you a non caffeine energy boost.


Optional Add-Ins: pinch of Celtic Sea Salt, Cucumbers, Manuka Honey

This protein powder is so much more than that—your daily dose of greens, probiotics + prebiotics, all the balancing adaptogens and vitamins. I’ve searched high and low for a clean protein powder and this one tastes SO pure and delicious—no weird after taste.

Fuel your body with 3 complete proteins, full range of minerals, raw greens, fiber, prebiotics and probiotics, digestive enzymes and adaptogenic mushrooms. Crafted with the highest quality organic ingredients, this protein + greens powder, made for all lifestyles, is satisfying and will give you so much energy.

This unique blend contains easy to digest and absorb ingredients that are not highly processed or synthetic like most protein powders on the market.

Hydration Booster

The BEST electrolyte mix! You’ll notice a quick shift in energy, mental focus and all around gumption for the day as you sip this. 

Hydration booster hydrates without the added sugar, artificial flavors or preservatives that most traditional electrolyte mixes contain. L-carnitine is an amino acid that turns your body’s essential fatty acids into energy, giving you an energy boost without any caffeine.


Optional Add-Ins: combine with your Plant Protein + Greens Smoothie or a splash of Tart Cherry Juice [in the evening to increase melatonin production]

Blue Spirulina Lemonade Magnesium

One of my favorite editions to my beverage line up—this is SO refreshing, calming and hydrating. Magnesium works with the body to provide personalized support in the moment. Either calming or energizing you and long term energy and hormonal balance. And that’s why I love having a glass in the evening while I make dinner! But this one you can try at any point in the day. The bright blue color will instantly perk you up and is so fun + beautiful to drink. A perfect combination for one of the healthy drinks for energy I’m showing you here!

This blue lemonade magnesium is all-in-one with 72 trace minerals for electrolyte support!

Magnesium is the body’s anti-stress mineral and one that most women are deficient in. Magnesium is a foundational mineral to support healthy energy levels, bolster gut health and nervous system vitality. Ittrengthen muscle, bone, and dental health, and provide hydrating electrolytes.
