Mommin’ makes us tired, right? Our days are nonstop and chaotic, with plenty of stress and not enough sleep. So it makes sense to want something to help boost our energy to get through the day. And what’s more convenient than grabbing an energy drink?
Instead of sipping on a Red Bull or overdoing it with caffeinated drinks, let’s enjoy beverages that support our energy levels and our health with natural ingredients and less sugar.
Here are some drinks that swap exhaustion for energy without side effects!
Our 8 Favorite All-Natural Energy Boosting Drinks:
Dehydration affects your mood and energy, so drinking plain water is the most natural way to increase energy and fight fatigue. Muscle cells shrivel when they don’t have enough fluids and electrolytes, which makes our work and performance suffer. Zero calories and zero caffeine, and made by God, water is the purest liquid for high energy.
Avoid the caffeine crash by avoiding drinks with, well, caffeine. BCAAs are stimulant-free, so you can sip on them throughout the day to feel alert and focused. In addition to minimizing fatigue, their amino acids also enhance your workouts. Our Momsanity BCAAs do not contain fake sugars, colors, or preservatives.
3. Mom Fuel smoothies.
When you make your own smoothies, you control the healthy ingredients. Enjoy a natural energy boost from the protein and veggies and fruit, all while enjoying a satisfying meal that keeps you full for hours. Our Momsanity Mom Fuel protein powder contains no artificial ingredients or energy-zapping gluten, dairy, or soy.
Cocoa naturally contains a small amount of caffeine (and is low in calories). Our Momsanity CRAVE cocoa blend also contains magnesium (and an abundance of other nutrients), which naturally energizes the body. The wealth of nourishing compounds stimulates brain functions, keeping us alert and productive.
Kombucha is made from fermented tea and natural ingredients. This fizzy drink has a little caffeine and a lot of gut-healthy probiotic flora. Just pick one with low sugar. Or make your own with this budget-friendly recipe.
6. Coconut water.
Instead of sugar-loaded sports drinks, enjoy coconut water which has high levels of nutrients, minerals, potassium, and antioxidants. You'll stay hydrated and, therefore, more energized.
7. Green tea.
Green tea has natural caffeine, as well as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It benefits your body and can even help you lose weight.
Made from ground-up tea leaves, matcha is packed with nutrition. While this natural energy drink has the same amount of caffeine as coffee, it also contains L-theanine, which has a calming effect.
