Like many mums, Healthy Mummy community member Brooke Jones says she relies on energy boosting drinks to get her through the day, after spending it running around after her little ones.
But how does Brooke boost her energy WITHOUT coffee and sugar-filled power drinks like Red Bull and Gatorade?
Here are her five favourite energy boosting drinks to help her start the day in a healthy way…
5 morning energy-boosting drinks to make you forget about coffee
1. Super Greens
Brooke says, “I love having Super Greens on mornings when I have a slump in energy or feel flat.”
“The iron boost gives me the energy that I need to get me through the morning. It helps me to get through when I have a night out with my girls and it is even an awesome hangover cure.”
Specifically designed for busy mums, the Healthy Mummy Energy Boosting SUPER GREENS Powder vitamin supplement is here to help boost your energy and support your immune system. They also include more iron than 12 cups of spinach and 56 x more B12 than a beef steak! Purchase your Super Greens here.
2. Healthy Mummy Smoothie
“Packed with protein and all the nutrients I need, The Healthy Mummy Smoothies give me a boost to make it through my morning.”
“You can add any energy boosting ingredient you like to your smoothies (I love chia seeds in mine).”
If you can’t get by without a hot drink in the morning, tea is a great option!
Recently Brooke’s been loving her Blue Butterfly Tea made from the Blue Pea Flower and turns the tea blue.
“The colour is amazing and it gives me a little pep when I am feeling flat and tired. It has a kind of lavender flavour and and a stunning blue colour. It is a great herbal boost to my morning.”
4. Healthy Mummy Drinking Chocolate
Brooke used to love a hot chocolate in the morning, but now she’s enjoying her Healthy Mummy alternative.!
“I love that I can have a hot chocolate that isn’t packed with sugar that still gives the sweet hit that I need and it kind of tricks my brain into thinking that I had a sugar hit when really I didn’t!”
Did you know that traditional drinking chocolate or hot chocolate can have up to 80 per cent sugar in? The GOOD NEWS is that we have created The Healthy Mummy Drinking Chocolate with NO added sugar and with lots of additional nutrients in – so as well as tasting AMAZING – it is actually good for you.
It’s rich, chocolatey and so delicious. AND ONLY 170 Kilojoules (40 Calories) per serve. To purchase yours, click here.

The BRAND NEW Protein Powder is a great boost for after a morning run, walk or workout.
Our Healthy Mummy protein is an AWESOME source of high quality whey protein with 28 grams per serve and is a whopping 93 per cent protein!
This high quality protein powder is breastfeeding friendly and comes from grass fed cows. It is ideal for adding into smoothies for an extra protein hit and is also great for baking with and doesn’t contain any extra hormones.
Brooke’s 25kg weight loss story
Brooke has lost 25kg through The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges.
She says: “Don’t concentrate on only numbers. Measurements count just as much if not more than the scales. Make sure you check your BMR before you start so that you are eating the right amount of calories each day.
“Set yourself small goals to reach and when you do reach them reward yourself. Celebrate the little steps to your major goal.”
Brooke’s top 3 tips to stay on track this November:
1. Don’t sweat the small stuff, if you have a bad day just get back up the next day and try again.
2. Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. Be ready for anything life can throw at you. Prep meals and snacks and you have no excuse but to smash it.
3. Keep your eye on the prize. Remember your ‘why’ and keep it in the forefront of your thoughts and smash your goals.
Great goals Brooke, you go girl!
