Making your own electrolyte drink is a healthier, more cost effective way of keeping up with summer hydration when water just isn’t cutting it. It is also a great way to flavor your water for those who just don’t crave plain water.
Many sports drinks have artificial colors, flavors, and are heavy on sweeteners. By making it at home, you’ll know your ingredients, can customize to your preferences, and save money.
Basic Electrolyte Drink Recipe:
- 2 cups water (or coconut water, cooled tea, etc.)
- 1/8 tsp pink Himalayan se salt
- Juice from 1/4 – 1/2 lemon
- 1-3 tsp local raw honey
- 1 capsule Genesis BioHealth Magnesium emptied (optional)
- Ice cubes (optional)
Run for a few seconds in a blender. Alternatively, use slightly warm liquid and shake vigorously to dissolve before adding ice. Serve cold.
- Experiment with other flavors and add-ins like stevia, lemon/lime, orange, pineapple & coconut water, a splash of apple cider vinegar, and herbs like mint and basil.
- This may taste saltier if left overnight, but keeps up to a week. Make sure to shake any leftovers vigorously, or add more water.
- Easily doubles or triples for a party.
- Freeze this mixture into ice cubes, then simply add water.
