I just learned a recipe to make my own sports drink, which I consume liberally during summer sport season (ultimate Frisbee and volleyball, mostly). This recipe comes from ShopSmart magazine, published by Consumer Reports. I’m so excited to try this out and not buy Gatorade anymore!
4 c water
2 T sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Lemon juice or Kool-aid to taste
Mix everything together and voila! You’re ready to go. Add your preferred sugar-free flavor to taste. I’m guessing this stuff will last a few weeks in your fridge so try making a big batch and pouring it into reusable water bottles as needed.
What are other recipes you can easily make at home, thereby saving yourself a bundle?
