Homemade Energy/Weight Loss Drink

This is a very tasty and extremely healthy drink I concocted. Drink this throughout the day and you’ll notice increased energy and weight loss. I’ve been drinking this almost every day and can really tell a difference in how I feel ( totally safe for nursing mothers, you might want to be careful about the green tea though, just depends on if it affects your baby or not, for me Brooklyn is sleeping great and happy as ever so I know that it’s okay for us).

Here’s how to make a 16 oz. size drink.

First add the water (8 oz.) double or triple the recipe if you want to store it in the fridge to have it on hand. Drink 16 oz. at least twice a day.

8 oz. of freshly brewed green tea (try the berry flavored kind for more flavor) Green tea is full of antioxidants, helps burn fat, improves heart health, and increases energy.

1 scoop of Cleanse For Life powder or 2 oz. of liquid Cleanse For Life. Everyday we’re exposed to hundreds of toxins–from the food we eat, to the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the items we touch. Without proper cleansing of impurities, the body struggles to maintain good health. Cleanse for Life helps give your body the nutrition it needs to cleanse itself naturally, and unlike other “cleanses,” laxatives or diuretics that can deplete your body, Cleanse for Life nourishes and feeds your whole body with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals. Deep and daily cleansing with either our powder or liquid forms of Cleanse for Life, supports your mental and physical performance, resistance to stress and digestive health. It can also help protect your body from the cumulative damage of environmental toxins and oxidative stress and encourages safe and effective weight loss by gently removing impurities.

2 scoops Want More Energy powder. Want more energy is a refreshing drink powder containing Vitamins A, C and B complex, electrolytes and nutrients that are lost during stress and exercise.

Lemon juice, squeeze one full lemon. Lemon juice promotes healthy digestion, and weight loss.

2 Tablespoons of Chia seeds. Because of the unique gelling action of the chia seeds, they will keep you feeling full for hours. They also help balance blood sugar levels, adds healthy omega 3 to your diet, and will keep you feeling energized all day because of it’s complete protein. It also has antioxidants and will help cut the food cravings.

Sliced Cucumbers (about 5 or 6 slices). Cucumbers are a great source of vitamin C and also help improve the health of your skin.

Fresh Mint leaves. For added flavor.

    I’m LDS and was under the impression that you were too–isn’t tea against the Word of Wisdom? Green tea is not herbal tea–green tea is tea, just like white tea and black tea.

      Hmm, I don’t know. I’ve never heard or seen anything about green tea being against the word of wisdom. I guess it’s just a personal decision everyone has to make on their own. I personally don’t think I’m doing anything wrong. I take extremely good care of my body and thats what it’s really all about. Green tea has a lot of great health benefits.

      I spoke to my husbands father about Green Tea, because he is a health professional who uses Green Tea in formulations. He has spoken with his area authorities, as have many people in our company who ar also LDS. I’m not sure what yours would say, but on many occasions Bishops and Stake Presidents have ok’d it. How could they not when LDS women are probably the #1 highest consumers of Diet Coke on the planet. lol Green tea is super healthy, there is overwhelming evidence of that. Still, to each their own.
