super-charged energy drink made by you!

energized breakfast juice

Hard to imagine, but you might be a little tired of all the holiday treats you’ve been having over the past couple of weeks. I know I am. So I made myself a nice little pick-me-up this morning to recharge.
This easy to make, all natural, super-charged drink gave me a nice little energy boost and is pretty simple to make.

Here’s what you need:

1 carrot

1 stalk of celery

a handfuls of parsley

1 small beet

1/4 of a red pepper

1/2 a tomato

1 small apple

1 tbsp. protein powder of your choice (the one I use is a dairy and gluten free, rice protein)

  • place all your ingredients into the cup of your immersion blender or a large glass
  • add 1/2 – 1 cup of water
  • blend until smooth

I do mine in my immersion blender, because I like all the fiber that you get, but you can you use a blender or juicer as well.

This drink is chock full of good stuff like vitamins A, C and K, potassium, folate, antioxidant nutrients and phytonutrients such as beta carotene and lutein, and fiber of course!
