5 Vegan Energy Drinks

The following article was written by Megan Bedard.

Luckily for vegans, some of the most popular energy boosters are naturally vegan—think coffee, tea, and orange juice.

But sometimes, whether you’re hitting the books or attending an awesome PETA demonstration, you need a little extra jolt. But navigating the ingredient lists on cans of liquid energy can be tricky (taurine, for example, comes from animals, but there is a synthetic version that many companies use).

Here are five energy drinks that you can count on being vegan. Prepare for take-off!

    Is Nos vegan? And are all monsters and rockstars vegan?

    Even if the contents in the energy drinks are vegan, PLEASE REMEMBER that these drinks create loads of waste through packaging and mass production. So whilst they don’t directly harm wildlife or the environment, please think of the impact of landfill and removing animal habitat to set up factories. Also think of your bodies! These drinks are terrible for you.
    So whilst they are slightly better than their non-vegan cousins, they are still causing major problems.

    Why not grow oranges in your backyard and have freshly squeezed orange juice? Then turn the orange peel into delicious orangettes!!

    LOVE my Red Bull… I remember my husband calling them up about 11 years ago to find out if it was vegan, and I was soooooo happy that it is, and always has been!

    Guayaki Yerba Mate Canned Energy Drinks (Lemon Elation, Revel Berry, Enlighten Mint). The lemon is my favorite. I think they work better than Rockstar, Monster, etc. And Organic, Fair Trade, and Vegan.–%5BCase-of-12-Shipping-Included%5D.html
