Homemade Energy Drink

I posted this video on facebook yesterday and had quite a few people who wanted exact measurements for my homemade frugal energy drink. So here ya go!

We all know those energy drinks at the store cost way too much! This cost pennies AND is so good for you!

Recipe:
32 oz ice water
1-2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (try to get up to a 1/4 cup)
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric 
1/8 tsp cayenne
stevia to taste (I like mine sweet!)
an emergen-c packet (I don’t always put these in)
1 scoop Ascorbic vitamin c powder (I don’t use this if I use the emergen-c packet)

Optional: If this is just a little too much for you… if the sound of it makes you want to gag then fell free to put these in! They are sweetened with truvia and super yummy.

Sometimes I like to toss in some matcha green tea powder as well! Especially if I’m feeling extra tired that day!

Wondering why so many ingredients?! I like to get the biggest bang for my buck at all times. Each of the ingredients (aside from the crystal light of course) have so many health benefits!

Here is an article on the benefits of turmeric!


There are many more benefits to ginger than just aiding digestion/helping with nausea!


These are the jars that I use to drink out of!

And these are the lids that I put on top. Just drill a hole in the top and plop a metal straw in there!

These metal straws are bomb. We go through straws like crazy so I think I bought 4 sets.
