Fitting the Taste of MTE into Your Daily Routine

MTE is about coming at energy from a different angle: What if we felt good and had energy in the first place instead of constantly chasing ways to not be cranky and tired? And that question spurred a new, unique development process of a wellness shot: one focused wholly on function. It’s about the meat of the drink – the purpose; not about additives and sugars for taste. As a consequence, the taste is as unique as the shot itself:


The first time I tried our formulation I was struck by the strong taste, but I soon started to feel a little lighter…more motivated…leveled up…and I was laser-focused and in THE ZONE.


– Jeff Boyd, Founder


We often evaluate health drinks based mostly on their taste. And if you have a not-so-great reaction to the flavor of something, you’ll likely never drink it again. But what are we missing out on by using taste as our only litmus test for the quality of a wellness drink? What about overall health and vitality?


MTE is about performance. We’re chasing a great life, not fancy flavors. Natural, potent, time and science-tested ingredients offer benefits way past the short experience of drinking the shot. And because it’s formulated with adaptogens, nootropics and superfoods, the benefits accumulate over time. So you gotta give it a chance, or you’ll never know the full potential of what it can do.


Healthy Recipes to Make the Most of Your Daily Shot of MTE

Here’s the thing – there’s nothing that says MTE needs to be a standalone situation. Since it’s clean, natural, and without added sugars, it plays well with others. So maybe the answer to the question of flavor is to incorporate MTE into one of your other daily wellness drinks – cold or hot. You get the benefits of both drinks as well as more of a choice on how your MTE routine tastes.


Here are 3 energizing smoothie recipes we absolutely love that also happen to perfectly complement MTE:


Get Sh*t Done Smoothie

  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup nut milk
  • ⅔  frozen mango
  • 1 medium frozen banana
  • 1 cup of baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon pecans
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 7 drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 MTE


Dialed-In Focus

  • 1 Medjool date
  • 1 banana
  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups nut milk or water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 1 MTE


Good Mood Smoothie

  • 1 ½ cup frozen banana
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup frozen cherries
  • 1 ½ cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
  • 1 MTE


Hot drinks more your thing? We’ve noticed MTE blends well with: 



We love a good matcha latte. At the same time, what if we could cut down on the caffeine without cutting down on that strong, leafy taste? Drop a shot of MTE in some hot oat milk and add about half as much matcha as you usually would, and maybe a little bit of agave nectar.


Yerba Mate

Let’s be honest; if you like yerba mate, you probably won’t have any issues with MTE’s flavor profile! This traditional Argentinian drink is a lot like our feel-good shot: the wellness benefits eclipse the taste. Plus, just like yerba mate, MTE can be consumed at any time of day, as it offers calm energy and focus without a caffeine content that will disrupt your sleep.



This popular Indonesian drink is often used by people who work night shifts, so maybe keep this one for the morning… unless you work the night shift. Sarraba is spicy. Coconut milk and palm sugar temper white peppercorns and ginger – it wakes you up in more than one way. Adding a shot of MTE will blend with the flavors while also taking a bit of bite out of the spice.


As daily users of MTE, we’re used to the taste, because there’s a lot to appreciate about the boost this little 2oz shot gives our energy, mood, concentration, and sleep quality. In such an exhausted society, we need to change the way we think about how we get energy, so maybe we also need to rethink where flavor falls on our priority list.
