Homemade Sports Drink

It’s hot.  And I’m sweaty.  Do you ever feel like have a cold drink after being outside in the summer or after a good workout?  Just water doesn’t sound good and you know sports drinks are full of crap, you know that right?  I mean flame retardants in your drink just never seemed liked a good idea to me.  Not to mention the food coloring, high fructose corn syrup, and other food additives…blah!  It’s super easy to make your own and only takes 4 simple ingredients.  #1 Water.  #2 Himalayan Sea Salt– this is where you’ll get 83 different minerals and electrolytes.  #3 Juice of choice. #4 honey or maple syrup.



Homemade Sports Drink


  • 7 C Spring Water (sometimes I’ll use a combo of coconut water and spring water)
  • 1 C juice of choice (I like lime, lemon, pineapple or a combination)
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup


    1. Mix all ingredients into a 1/2 gallon glass jar and enjoy!

  1. Yum! Pineapple would be a delicious choice. I have a similar recipe, and use raw honey and a couple of drops of Lemon essential oil.
