Use fresh, organic juice for the best results, although you can always buy organic juice at your health food store in a pinch. This recipe will make about 3 cups of electrolyte replacing sports drink, so have your container ready!

By the way, this drink will also work for children who are sick, vomiting, or have diarrhea and need to replace their electrolytes. Have you ever read the ingredients on those Pedialyte bottles? Red dye #40, Blue dye #1, citric acid, sucralose, dextrose, and lots of other things you probably don’t want your kids ingesting! This recipe will work well for both you and your kids. Try freezing some of this drink and make popsicles. Your kids will think you’re a big softie, giving them popsicles when they are sick. You don’t have to tell them that they are good for them!
