lthomas521 Posted July 13, 2006 Report Share Posted July 13, 2006 Someone posted their doctor's recipe for a salt-replacement drink a few days ago. I've been adjusting it over the past few days. I think the original was 1/2 tsp of salt1/2 tsp of potassium chloride (salt substitute)1/2 tsp of baking soda4 T of sugarLemon juice or other flavoring, to tasteThe result tastes a little like "bowel prep," for any of you who have had a colonoscopy. Also, I don't think I need that much sugar.The first thing I did was substitute Gatorade powder for some of the sugar. Then I cut it down to 1 T of gatorade powder, no extra sugar. This morning, I tried 1 T of sugar but added some licorice extract (with the glycyrrhizin, which is the active ingredient we need)--but no Gatorade powder. Not exactly a taste sensation, but drinkable. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
