Do you ever feel worn down and tired in the afternoon, but can't take a much needed cat-nap? If so, then welcome to my world. I stay tired constantly. I guess that comes with the territory when you have 2 kids under that age of 5. I don't get enough sleep at night, and during the day, my little ones definitely keep me busy chasing after them. And naps? Ha! Not in this house. Not for Mom, at least. My kids aren't THAT nice to me!
So what do I do when I need a mid-afternoon energy boost? I mix up some 5-hour ENERGY® shots and some of my favorite drinks. (I don't really care for them on their own.) Whether it's the Pink Lemonade flavor mixed with Sprite or Grape mixed with Grape Juice, I have come up with some pretty interesting flavor combinations. Not that Grape on Grape is creative...or particularly interesting, for that matter. But it sure is tasty!
Recently, I had the opportunity to try out several varieties of 5-hour ENERGY®. Of course that made me become a mixologist once again. I received several different flavors including Grape, Pink Lemonade, Sour Apple, and Berry, just to name a few.
This time around, I wanted to make something that gave me a nutritional boost as while as increased energy. I decided to use the 5-hour ENERGY® Extra Strength in Berry and some of my favorite smoothie. (This stuff is good. Seriously, if you haven't tried it, you must. It's located in the natural and organic refrigerated section of most grocery chains.)
When I felt my energy dwindling as quickly as my patience, I knew it was the perfect time to try out this new combination. I needed some energy, for my sake and the sake of my kids!
All I did was pour my 5-hour ENERGY® shot into a glass, filled it the rest of the way with my Smoothie, stirred, and Voila! You've got a delicious and nutritious drink that will add a little pep to your step. This is great while munching on a few ripe berries. Because we all need a reason to eat more fresh produce.
I think I will call this little potion "Brandy's Berry Boost". Try it some time! It came out really well, and you definitely feel more alert after drinking it!
Could you use the boost of a 5-hour ENERGY® shot, but would like to find new ways to drink it? Well you're in luck!
