6 of the best sugar free energy drinks you can buy

Published by Finn Hayden

We've always found it strange that people will happily drink 3 cups of coffee per day but will often stick their noses up at energy drinks, but for people who need a boost and don't like coffee, energy drinks are ideal.

The one downside of most energy drinks is that they're often packed with sugar. Luckily, there are sugar free energy drinks out there, and some of them are really excellent. We wanted to round up the best sugar free energy drinks that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

Virtue Clean Energy

The Virtue Clean Energy energy drinks are really impressive because as well as being totally sugar free, they also contain no calories. The caffeine in this energy drink comes from a blend of green coffee beans and yerba mate, so it's all natural and there is absolutely nothing else artificial in the can. We really love the taste of these energy drinks, and instead of sugar they contain erythritol which is a natural sweetener. Flavours include Berries and Tropical, and as an added bonus, each can of Virtue Clean Energy sold gives money towards the conservation of rainforests. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com

Xite Energy

We're starting to see Xite energy drinks stocked in more places, and we're not surprised at all by this. Not only is it sugar free, but it's also great tasting and made using 3 active nootropics.  All of the caffeine in this energy drink (118mg) is from 100% natural sources, and it also contains zinc and B vitamins. Despite being sugar free, it still has a nice sweetness and the Raspberry & Watermelon flavour really comes through. It also contains no preservatives or colourings, We love this energy drink, learn more and buy it here - hollandandbarrett.com

Monster Zero Sugar

The Monster range of energy drinks is easily one of the most popular in the UK, and despite the range featuring lots of drinks containing sugar, the sugar free Monster energy drink is one of the most popular in the entire range. We're not too surprised by this because not only does it pack a lot of energy, but it also tastes just as good as any of the full sugar drinks from the range.

Red Bull Sugarfree

Red Bull is another energy drink that you've almost certainly heard of - it's probably the biggest energy drink brand in the world. But despite the popularity of the brand, there are still lots of people who avoid the sugar free version of the energy drink because they think it won't taste nice, but that really isn't the case! Not only does the sugar free Red Bull tastes great, but it also provides you with the same amount of energy that you'd get from a full sugar Red Bull. Learn more and buy it here - groceries.asda.com

Lucozade Zero

The Lucozade brand probably needs no introduction, but often people don't realise that there is a sugar free version of Lucozade. What's really impressive about Lucozade Zero is that we think it tastes exactly like normal Lucozade, despite containing no sugar. We have a guide about what makes Lucozade healthy if you want to learn more about this energy drink. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com

Red Thunder Sugar-Free

A few of the major UK supermarkets stock their own range of energy drinks, but we think that the best sugar free energy drink that we've tried from any of the supermarkets is the sugar free Red Thunder from Aldi. The taste reminded us a lot of Red Bull, but it's the price which really impresses us - you can sugar free Red Thunder for half the price of a sugar free Red Bull, and we feel it'll do almost the same job in terms of giving you energy.
