Gatorade is filled with nasty chemicals, artificial flavorings, colorings and lots of refined sugar. It is not healthy!! If you need more info to decide if drinking Gatorade or Powerade is for you, I encourage you to read these three articles before making your decision. Then come on back and make the EASY and CHEAP Gatorade alternative recipe below. It tastes so much better than the processed nastiness!
SPORTS DRINK MADE EASY, CHEAP AND WITH REAL FOOD
- Mix 2 cups coconut water, juice from a lemon and half an orange, 1T maple syrup (or honey), a pinch of salt.
- You can make it stronger or sweeter to your preference and dilute it with extra water and ice to what works best for you.
- I like to slice the other half of the orange into rounds and float them in the jar. The drink gets better after spending a night in the refrigerator.
