Electrolade: A Homemade Sports Drink

By Monday, June 1, 2015 0 Permalink 0

Overview

This sports drink is better than any brand from the grocery store. It’s made from all-natural ingredients,  and is packed full of energy promoting electrolytes. It will refuel your cells, keep you hydrated and replace the minerals lost in your sweat. A great way to beat the heat. 

Ingredients

  • 1 quart filtered water
  • a big pinch of unrefined sea salt
  • ¼ c juice from fresh, organic lemons or limes
  • 2 tbsp *raw honey

Preparation Method

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large glass jug or jar, until combined. 
  2. Chill in the fridge for a few hours and enjoy. 
    Consume before, durning or after a workout, or on a beautiful, hot summer day. I love adding fresh mint for even more refreshing flavour.
