Homemade Sports Drink Recipe

Recommended Posts

I got really tired of the artificial taste of sports drinks really fast, so I decided to make my own. :) I got the water : salt ratio from here. Everything else is my own devising.


4 cups of water

6 tbsp (1/4 of a cup and 2 tbsp) cheribundi tart cherry juice (tart cherry juice, apple juice)

¼ cup pure pomegranate juice (not from concentrate)

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice (approx. the juice of 1 lemon)

3 tbsp sugar

¼ tsp salt

Pomegranate and tart cherry juice are both recommended to prevent muscle soreness after a workout. So it's good for athletes with or without POTS. Apple juice contains almost 5 times the potassium per serving as Gatorade. And no dye or artificial sweetener in this. ^^
