Whether you love canned commercial energy drinks or hate them, you can probably agree that they’re overpriced. Plus, nobody likes a case of the caffeine jitters when you’re up late trying to cram for test or working third shift.
While giving up Monster and Red Bull sure helps out your wallet (and your body – scroll through energy drink ingredients, and you’ll find a cornucopia of preservatives, sugars and artificial sweeteners, and more), you’ll probably want some sort of alternative. Here’s the good news, though – you can make your own healthier energy drink with green powdered tea.
If you follow pop culture news even casually, you’re probably no stranger to the “miracle drink” trend – supermodel Miranda Kerr and actress Megan Fox are still swearing by the apple cider vinegar diet, and juice cleanses keep making short-lived comebacks.
But when you get some matcha and some tea and a collection of inexpensive other ingredients, you can create your own power drink – it’ll give you sustained energy, support clearer skin, and taste better than any of the energy drink brands you’ve tried (and taste much better than straight-up apple cider vinegar Megan!)
