This Spicy Margarita is the ‘Healthy’ Amino Acid Drink You’ve Been Craving

As far as healthy amino acid drink recipes go, this one is tops.

There’s no reason your heath obsession and your deep, passionate love for guac and margaritas can’t live happily ever after in unison. That’s why we stole Noah Neiman‘s recipe for BCAA-fueled frozen spicy margaritas just in time for summer, and if you’re wondering who Noah is, anyway, he’s the the trainer responsible for the incredibly hot bodies we all know as Karlie Kloss, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, and Jake Gyllenhaal (ohemgee). Also, this guy apparently makes whey protein in ice cream sandwich flavor, so let’s just let that settle into your innards.
