Strawberry Grapefruit Energy Cocktail preparation instructions
- Get the ingredients and glass ready
- Choose a tall, clear glass and set it aside.
- Wash the strawberries and mint leaves thoroughly.
- Slice one strawberry and a piece of grapefruit for garnish and set them aside. Squeeze the grapefruit until you have the required amount.
- If your strawberries aren’t particularly sweet, have some agave syrup or honey ready to add extra sweetness.
- Blend the main ingredients
- Get your blender and add in your Strawberry Grapefruit 3E Energy, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave syrup and whole strawberries (save the sliced one for garnish).
- Blitz these ingredients until you reach a smooth consistency, ensuring that the strawberries are thoroughly puréed into the liquid.
- Add in your chia seeds
- Pour the blended mixture into your glass then gently stir in your chia seeds, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the drink.
- Allow the cocktail to sit for approximately 10 minutes to let the chia seeds expand and gelatinise slightly and add a unique texture to your Strawberry Grapefruit Energy Cocktail.
- If the seeds clump together, give the cocktail another gentle stir.
- Ice and garnish
- Add a handful of ice cubes to your Strawberry Grapefruit Energy Cocktail.
- Gently place the sliced strawberry and a wheel of grapefruit on the rim of the glass.
- Throw in a sprig of fresh mint as a final garnish.
Why you’ll love our Strawberry Grapefruit Energy Cocktail
The ingredients we used are packed with all sorts of good stuff. Let’s take a look:
- Strawberries and grapefruits — The red colour in strawberries partially comes from anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants linked to heart health and blood sugar control. On the other hand, the lycopene in grapefruit, responsible for its pinkish hue, has been studied for its capacity to combat oxidative stress and inflammation, potentially offering protective qualities against certain chronic conditions.
- Chia seeds — Known for their dense nutritional profile, chia seeds help promote steady energy release, preventing rapid blood sugar spikes and drops. In addition, they’re also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and protein. This makes them ideal for managing energy levels throughout the day.
