DIY Homemade Healthy Sports Drink
We have a super active family. We're all athletes and we love to play outdoors. I have one kiddo that is easily dehydrated and one that just doesn’t love plain water. It's also difficult for me to maintain my blood minerals and electrolytes due to my adrenal fatigue. Traditional sports drinks have a ton of sugar or are sweetened with stevia and have several other nasty ingredients. Stevia’s a great sweetener, but doesn't have the essential fructose needed to keep you hydrated and support blood sugar during activity and there’s a delicate balance between salts, sugars, minerals and water when it comes to hydration. I like this recipe because tastes good, doesn't have a lot of sugar, and most importantly, it really works!
3 cups Watermelon Juice or other base (see below)
⅓ cup Lemon Juice
¼ tsp Himalayan Pink or Real salt
2 TB Manuka or Raw Honey
