When mixing up energizers, it can sometimes result in less than appetizing hues. Oftentimes, when people see green, they think the drink is going to taste like raw kale. So help out wary drinkers by serving those up in an opaque cup. However, in the case of this Red Beauty Energizer…the vibrant red hue of this smoothie will get everyones mouth watering.
“We are so addicted to sugar,” says Koerner, who created this naturally sweet smoothie to help “wean people off artificial sugars” and introduce them to more healthful alternatives. The Energizer combines potassium-rich watermelon and sweet beet greens with vitamin B-packed cucumbers, creating an energy-boosting blend that helps hydrate the skin and detoxify the liver and digestive system—perfect for springtime cleansing!
While it can help jolt morning spa guests, Koerner recommends the smoothie before a workout to rev up endurance, or imbibed with a few almonds for the perfect “late-in-the-day pick-me-up.” Emergency coffee run? Pass, we’ve got The Energizer on call.
One piece of advice: Don’t sip on this smoothie after dinner—“unless you have plans to stay up and clean the house all night,” Koerner cautions. Those dust bunnies can wait ‘til later this spring…”
