Awaken Your Senses - Lemon Cayenne Energy Drink

 Post image for Morning Drink: Lemon Cayenne Water

I am not a big fan of  energy  drinks  but I did  come across a  recipe from a book I was reading on last month and wanted to  share  this drink  recipe for you.  One of the reasons I like this recipe is the  fact that its healthy and all natural. I have  this drink once a day because it gives me energy and it's   very delicious.  The other benefit of this drink is that it can be detoxifying for your liver and digestive system.  If you drink this in the morning  you will get your digestion and  metabolism  going. That also means you can burn more fat too,  the overall drink can  actually get your body going and  more tasty than you popping an energy  drink like the red bull. While its great any time  of the day I prefer to pop this in in the morning, wakes me up very good... well I have it after i have my coffee LOL but that is drink I enjoy like a treat!



 Here is the recipe as  follows:

1  Lemon  ( a small works fine, if you get a large one, you  can use just hald of it)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper ( more or less depending on your taste)
a packet  of  calorie free sweetener to taste ( I used sweet and low  but any of the packets will do)
Agave nectar ( a raw, honey-like  sweetener)  to  taste
2 cups  of water

Use a lemon  squeezer to extract the juice form the lemon.  I use  my hand to squeeze it all.  Mix all  the  ingredients together. Mix well and drink. I tend to add a few  cubes of ice to make it cold for myself but its delicious. The best part is that you are  blending it to  your taste so experiment with it until you find it to your liking. Enjoy!
