Homemade Sports Drink

Here is a quick easy electrolyte replacement drink which is less in sugar than the popular “electrolyte replacement sports drinks”. Each serving is about 8 oz. with just the water you get 4 servings, if adding coconut water you get 6.

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups coconut water (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp to 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 4 tablespoon lemon juiced, fresh squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Nutritional values if made with coconut water, this recipe will have 6 servings.

  • Calories – 14
  • Carbs – 3g
  • Sugar – 2.5g
  • Calcium – 17mg
  • Magnesium – 10mg
  • Phosphorus – 7mg
  • Potassium – 88mg

  • Calories – 11
  • Carbs – 3g
  • Sugar – 2.4g
  • Calcium – 13mg
  • Magnesium – 3mg
  • Phosphorus – 1mg
  • Potassium – 14mg

Note – Do not make this recipe omitting water and just using coconut water, coconut water with salt will make the sodium content over 300mg per serving. If you want to just use coconut water you can just omit the salt. Coconut water is already a great electrolyte replacement.
