Make a Homemade healthy electrolyte drink as a wonderful replacement for unhealthy store bought drinks like gatorade or powerade. Store bought drinks are typically full of high amounts of sugar, artificial sweeteners, dyes, and other unnatural ingredients. Pedialyte is another drink recommended by pediatricians but it's full of artificial ingredients so I do not consider it a healthy option.
This recipe makes a nourishing drink that you can easily mix together. Our homemade healthy electrolyte drink is great for after sports or a workout but equally helpful when you are dealing with any illness. Staying hydrated is important when you are fighting a cold, flu, or virus.
Electrolyte Drink Recipe
Makes a half gallon
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
- 1/4 cup organic juice – tart cherry, orange, ginger, grape, etc.
- 1 tsp. sea salt – use high quality like real salt, Celtic salt, or Himalayan salt
- Filtered water
- Optional: add 2 tsp. acerola cherry powder for added vitamin C
Pour all ingredients into a half gallon mason jar and fill with filtered water to the top. Mix well and drink throughout the day.
Make a larger batch in a pitcher or pour into individual bottles to drink throughout the week or to take with you to the gym or sports.
