This is easy … just toss everything into a food blender and blend until the honey is dissolved. No blender? No worry … just squeeze and mix all the ingredients together by hand.
Then treat yourself to a tall glass of the results, add a few ice cubes, and enjoy.
If you’re lazy, however, and buy your Gatorade, PowerAde or electrolyte pumped-up sports drinks at the store to maintain your body’s balance of electrolytes during and after periods of heavy exercise, you may want to note the following:
When you look closer, you’re really just paying an outrageous price for glorified, brightly colored, sugar water. An overload of processed and refined sweetener (in the case of sports drinks, high-fructose corn syrup) is never a good thing. And while artificial flavors and colors don’t technically do much to your health, a part of me just shies away from the idea of ingesting things that are “fake.”
We’ve been led to believe by certain companies that we need an extra-special drink to recover from some sweat.
So what’s the bottom line about buying sports drinks and energy drinks?
Make your own sports drink! It’s easy, quick, and naturally refreshing.
You will need…
-1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
-1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
-1½ to 2 cups fresh water, depending on how strong you want the flavor
-1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
-2 tablespoons natural sugar or honey, to taste
