Homemade Energy Drink...ditch the store bought version and make it easily at home.
When it's hot out or when we are really active, I like to have energy drinks on hand in addition to lots and lots of water.  My kids, of course, love super sweet drinks but I'm trying to watch their sugar intake and other unnecessary ingredients.  So my homemade energy drink is a compromise for the kids and the me.  They loved the citrus flavor and the sweetness from the agave syrup and I love that it's really healthy.

The bright orange comes from the B100 complex vitamins that I added, but this could easily be skipped.  However, adding the B vitamins help keep you energized among dozens of other amazing things like help with stress, fights aging, helps with depression and memory loss and so much more.
