Are you a big Sports Drink fan? You can make an inexpensive rehydration drink at home. Buying Gatorade and Powerade can really add up. Here’s a recipe for a sports drink rehydration substitute that is super cheap and you know what you’re putting into your body.
Here’s the recipe for a 2 quart packet:
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Morton Salt Substitute
- Mix thoroughly.
- Save in small packets.
- Add to 2 quarts water.
Measure all ingredients precisely. Small variations can make the drink less effective or even harmful. Don’t overload on this stuff. This recipe makes enough powder for 2 quarts of water, make sure you dilute it properly, too much and you will feel ill. If anything, on a hot day, mix this at 50% strength, (1 Homemade Sports Drink recipe + 4 quarts of water) so you’re drinking more water. If you’re drinking a lot of water, you can over load. You need the salts in your system to process the water properly. Stay hydrated–but keep a little salt in your system, too!
