Homemade Energy - Sports Drink

My husband has a love for Gatorade, Monster drinks, and other things that act like they are good for you but aren't.  So I decided to tackle this challenge and find a drink that can cut those things out of his diet while giving him the good stuff.  I found a recipe on Mom it Forward.  I followed the recipe except left out the B100 capsules because I couldn't find them where I was.  And as I was looking through other recipes I found that green tea is frequently used for caffeine among other natural qualities.

So we juiced all of the fruit (my little helper kept helping himself to it!).

Once I have the juice mixture done I put it in a pitcher.  Then I make the green tea in a separate container.  The kids like the juice and it is great to mix with water for my son at soccer.  

We bought a gallon drink cooler that hubby takes to work with him every day. I double the fruit recipe and use about 1/3 of that and add about 1/2 of the pitcher of tea.  Then I add water and ice to fill it up. He uses the agave nectar to make it to his taste and he has a great drink that he likes and is also better for him!  Hope you like it as much as we do.
