How To: Make Your Own High Protein Energy Drink

Chia Seed Energy DrinkA few months ago, we bought a huge bag of chia seed and have been adding it to just about everything for a great protein boost. The small seeds pack a big chunk of energy, so mixing up this drink is a great way to keep up with the day minus the over-caffeinated jitters.   I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get the overwhelming urge to crawl under my desk and take an afternoon nap. When I feel that glorious caffeinated buzz fade with the morning hours, I find the need to reach for a fresh boost, but generally a cup of coffee or standard energy drink leave me jittery in the evening. The folks over at Beard and Bonnet put together this interesting chia seed drink with a few ingredients including some essential oils. I’m not sure the seeds, which have a bit of a slimy feel when wet are the ideal texture to suck down in a drink, but it’s worth a try if the energy boost holds up to the test.Chia Drink

With a few minutes of mixing this drink is ready to carry you through to bedtime. Here’s a link to the recipe. I’ll be trying it out later this week, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the taste, texture, and yes, the results! So bottoms up, and cheers!
