Summer is equal to vacation, but for some, it means longer working hours. For the working class, in order to cope with the longer days, you try to grab the nearest fresh drink or dessert to boost up your energy. While caffeine and sugar in summer give a temporary energy boost, it wears off instantly in the afternoon, leaving you with fatigue. An afternoon nap isn't an option in a working place too, except if you're working for a Japanese-owned company.

 

It's important to keep in mind that in boosting energy (especially in summer), it goes beyond the food that you eat. It's necessary to get the right sleeping hours, exercise, environment, and so on. Beyond boosting energy, constant exercise improves mood, appetite, metabolism, and more. But if you're currently confined in a working setting, in the middle of summer, and exercise and nap isn't an option anymore, try to compensate with other things such as diet.

 

Whip up energy-boosting food and drinks that you could easily pack. You're in luck because I've compiled three of the best drink and dessert recipes for the working summer. And these aren't just any recipes; these are uniquely curated to boost your energy and, at the same time, refresh.
