Dr Oz: Energy Drink Recipes
Dr Oz revealed the Truth About Energy Drinks on his show. He concluded that there are a variety of reasons why we should skip those sugary energy drinks as often as possible. Next, he shared a Glutamine Energy Drink Smoothie Recipe, and refreshing Pineapple Mint Water & Lemon Lime Water Recipes.
To help reveal these recipes, Dr Oz invited weight loss and metabolism expert Lisa Lynn and audience member Tanya onstage. Here are the Energy Drink Alternatives they suggested.
Energy Drink Alternative: Yerba Mate Tea
Yerba Mate Tea naturally contains caffeine, and it has the added benefit of being a mood booster. Lisa said this is an acquired taste, but you can find it at most grocery stores. Lisa said that it’s also green, because it doesn’t come in prepackaged plastic since you brew it yourself at home.
