We decided that we needed to come up with our own way to enjoy delicious energy drinks without breaking the bank. Why not make our own recipes? That is exactly what we did!

white monster

The White Monster energy drink is probably our favorite energy drink out there. It quenches your thirst but also gives you a huge boost of energy. The light flavor is perfect on a hot day. The drink is also zero carbs so it is perfect for anyone trying to keep their carb count low or anyone on a keto diet. This is the type of drink we wanted to recreate! A homemade White Monster drink is definitely necessary!

What Flavor is White Monster?

Before making our own version of the White Monster energy drink, we needed to take a look at what makes the drink so good. This started with assessing the flavor of the drink.

White Monster can be simply described as citrus. It tastes like a very light blend of citrus juice.

Our homemade white monster drink is made using three different kinds of fresh citrus juice:

The fresh citrus juice makes the drink especially delicious, even better than the canned white monster drink. We even add coconut water to make the drink taste tropical. Our white monster flavor is truly the best!

What is in White Monster Drink?

White Monster drink is essentially an energy drink. The store bought version is slightly carbonated. It is full of B vitamins that will help give you energy.

We wanted to make our white monster energy drink even better than the canned version. Of course, we wanted to stick to the original idea of ​​white monster too. Here is what we put into our White Monster drink recipe and a little bit about why we chose the ingredients.

Coconut Water- Coconut water is naturally hydrating and delicious. The hydrating effects of drinking coconut water helps your muscles recharge and re-energize.

Lemon, lime and orange juice- A blend of fresh citrus juice is delicious and refreshing. This blend gives that signature white monster drink flavor.

Granular Erythritol- Using erythritol keeps the carb count of the drink low. The drink will still taste sweet while still being low carb.

Water- A little plain water will dissolve the erythritol and also help the drink taste better.

Now Instant Energy B12 powder- Now Instant Energy B12 powder has three types of B12 vitamins in order to give maximum fuel. It also has creatine, chromium and other b vitamins which all help increase energy levels. The plain flavor is perfect for our homemade white monster drink recipe which already has a lot of flavor.

Isn’t making this homemade energy drink easy? We know it will become part of your daily routine!

The nutrients in green vegetables have been shown to help support brain health, boost heart health, reduce the risk of some types of cancer, and even build strong bones. It’s unbelievable how much a few green leaves can do!

We wanted to harness the power of green by making an amazing, 100% healthy and super delicious juice. A smoothie that does not contain artificial flavors and does not contain a large amount of carbohydrates, fats or sugars. Something we can mix and drink and feel good about with every sip. This is how we came up with this green detox smoothie mix.

So what are the miracle ingredients we put in our detox smoothie? Here are the power-packed ingredients we picked:

  • spinach
  • parsley
  • An apple
  • option
  • celery
  • Lemon juice
  • honey

Seven of the most powerful green ingredients out there! Let us tell you a little about what each amazing and delicious ingredient does to your health and how it helps detox your body.

spinachSpinach is full of magnesium that supports bone health. Spinach also helps prevent cancer, lowers blood pressure and can reduce oxidative stress. Spinach helps detoxify the body of heavy metals by stimulating the production of liver and digestive enzymes.

Aren’t all these ingredients amazing! It’s amazing how some fresh veggies can help us be healthier.

To make a homemade detox drink, we simply put everything in a juicer to squeeze into a beautiful green drink. If you don’t have a juicer, I highly recommend getting one, especially if you’re committed to drinking clean, healthy juices to detoxify your body. Juicers are really capable of juicing the best nutrients from a vegetable or fruit, giving you a cup of concentrated benefits.

If you don’t have a juicer, put everything on our list into a blender and puree until smooth. This will give you juice with a little texture. If you want to remove the pulp, pass the juice through a fine strainer for a purer drink.
