Sports Drink Recipe

This is week 3 of our summer drink recipe series! If you the previous weeks be sure to check them out! They included a yummy Watermelon Strawberry Summer Drink Recipe and an Easy Lemonade Recipe. Now this week I have for you a sports drink recipe you can make at home. Although, Gatorade and other sports drinks are easy on the go options they are often loaded with unhealthy ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup and food coloring, so making your own really is the better choice.

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 cup unsweetened 100% juice with approximately 26-32 grams of carbs*
  • 1/4 tsp stevia
  • 1 pinch of salt

Recipe: Mix in a sports bottle or glass, chill, and enjoy!

*Note: Not all juices contain the same amount of carbs so be sure to read labels. Opt for a juice with 26-32 grams of carbs so that each servings contains only 13-16 grams of carbs which is an optimal balance for recovery and rehydration. Also make sure this is 100% juice and not a juice drink loaded with added sugars!
