It’s really easy to make your own energy drink, and you’ll undoubtedly find that it tastes better than the store-bought alternatives. In addition, the homemade version is all-natural (… no artificial flavors, colorings and preservatives) and a lot cheaper!
Here are the ingredients to mix together:
3 cups unsweetened cranberry juice (100 percent juice)
5 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Optional: 1 star anise. If using this optional ingredient, leave to infuse for one hour then strain.
After mixing all ingredients: refrigerate.
This all-natural homemade energy drink provides a great tasting mix of carbohydrates to fuel your muscles. It also contains electrolytes (sodium and potassium) to help replace what your body loses through sweat.
