This energy drink is super easy to mix up (especially if you have a small blender like a Magic Bullet or NutriNinja), hydrating, actually gives you energy and doesn’t fill you up like a smoothie would. Aside from the obvious purpose of this drink, it would also make for a great alternative to having a caffeinated beverage in the morning or afternoon.
Recipe from VeganAnn.com w/ slight modifications.
1 1/2 cups coconut water (if you don’t have coconut water, you can use water!)
½ tsp extra virgin coconut oil*
1½ tsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
2-3 dates (2 if you are using medjool dates, 3 if you are using the smaller deglet door dates)
1½ tsp agave nectar
pinch of sea salt
*Tip: melt the coconut oil before using! I learned the hard way and ended up with some tiny pieces of oil in my drink that would otherwise have blended in perfectly if the oil had been melted.
1. Put everything into the blender and blend well. Enjoy!
