So you don’t really like the taste of Green Tea but you’ve heard about all the health benefits it provides. Well here are a couple of ideas to help you spice up your Green Tea flavor and have you enjoying all the health benefits in no time.

I live in the hot city of Bangkok where having hot drinks just sounds unpleasant. Not to fear! We’ve got an ice cold solution for you. You’ve just come home from a visit with your personal trainer, where he seems to have put you through his own personal Boot Camp and you’re exhausted. Try a cup of iced green tea with a little bit of cinnamon and a dash of lemon to add that extra kick. It’s quite refreshing and delicious and is sure to hit the spot.

Wondering what to have before you hit the gym for some training? Food is often too heavy and your body will spend too much energy for the process of digestion when you really need it to focus blood flow to your muscles and extremities. So try having a pre workout shake with a few fruits, your favorite protein powder and use iced Green Tea as the liquid base. My personal favorite is vanilla protein powder, green tea, a teaspoon of honey and cinnamon; however you can mix whatever you like. The key is to experiment and have fun.

So there you have It folks; just a couple wonderful ideas to assist you along your path to a happy and healthy lifestyle. Drink up!
