Homemade Drinks For Natural Energy Boost
Most of the ingredients are common, everyday foods that you probably already have at home. If not you should be able to find them in any large supermarket or health food store. Some of these drinks for natural energy boost will require a juice extractor to make fresh juice and a blender to make smoothies. If you don't have these, most household appliance stores stock them and they're relatively inexpensive - just think of the money you'll save not buying ready-made energy drinks!
Note: Some of the below energy drinks include soy milk, a some-what controversial product these days (genetically modified soy beans, high pesticide levels, artificial additives etc). However, if you want to drink it you can make your own from organically grown, whole soy beans blended with purified water and naturally sweetened. Like any food or drink though, moderation is key - one or two glasses a week of homemade, natural soy-milk should be fine. Check with your health professional first though if you have concerns about soy milk.
