Electrolyte Replacement Drink (All-natural)

Submitted by: MLEDUC7

Introduction

This recipe is adapted from one that appears in Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guide Book (1997). It has virtually the same nutritional values as a popular brand-name sports drink, at a fraction of the cost, and using all-natural ingredients.

Ingredients

    1/4 tsp salt
    8 tsp sugar
    3 tbsp unsweetened orange juice concentrate
    4 cups water

Directions

At home, combine concentrate, salt and sugar in a small, leakproof container. Shake well to dissolve the sugar.

To prepare, add 4 tsp concentrate –about 1/4 of the mixture– to 1 cup cold water. Shake well. This mixture won't keep well outside the refrigerator, so unless you're out in cold weather, it should be used up within 24 hours.

For a longer lasting drink mix that still uses natural ingredients, you can substitute liquid juice concentrate with specialty ingredients such as freeze-dried cranberry or orange juice powder. Simply omit the concentrate and replace with enough powder for four servings of juice.
