When you party hard, you need a sure way to recover, which is why we've compiled this list of five great (healthy) energizing drinks to get you through your day. Be careful, you might find yourself giving up coffee after you see how well these drinks are at rebooting your system!
If you don't think you're ready to completely give up your caffeine, a good step in the right direction might be green tea. This drink contains a great amino acid called L-theanine—probably the biggest reason green tea made our list.
If you haven't heard about the benefits of chia by now, let us enlighten you. They are packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc, and iron. There are plenty of chia juice drinks on the market, but if you're up for mixing your own, follow this simple ratio: 2 cups liquid (coconut water is a personal favorite) to 1 and a half tablespoons chia seeds. Mix them up in a glass and let sit for 10 minutes (the chia seeds will swell up and become gelatinous). If you're a fan of the texture of boba, this drink might just become your new go-to after a long weekend of partying.
This one is simple and oh-so-energizing: just add a handful of spinach or kale to your regular smoothie in the morning. You probably won't even notice a significant difference in taste, but your body will definitely benefit from getting its veggies in the morning!
We like to think of kombucha as the perfect combination of the benefits of tea and Greek yogurt. The magic of kombucha is found in the SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), which acts as a probiotic. Jump start your digestive system and detoxify with some kombucha!
If all else fails, turmeric will be there for you. Turmeric is a sure way to reduce inflammation and deliver your antioxidants all in one superfood drink. Plus, you can't really go wrong with a nice cup of tea, right?
