Make your own sports drink! Save money now!

Hi friends! I wanted to give out a money saving tip. Lately I have been seeing the price of Gatorade go up. One bottle cost around $1.60 cents. During the winter it only cost like $0.80 cents per bottle.

So it’s fair to say that stores are taking advantage of Arizona 120 degree weather. But I refuse to pay that amount for Gatorade. Especially since it’s not known to be very healthy. Did you know that you can make your own supply of Gatorade for much cheaper?! This is what you will need:

  • Bottle water. Note: You can also use coconut water for added electrolytes!
  • Oranges, grapefruits, tangerine, lemons or limes. Any citric fruit.
  • Honey or sugar for sweeteners.
  •  Salt ( preferably sea salt or Himalaya pink salt.)

Now this is very simple. I don’t give measurements because you season to your taste. And you make as much or little as desired. Take your cup or gallon of water and squeeze in your citrus fruit. You want citric fruit because it contain electrolytes. Add as much squeezed fruit as you like. Then stir in your sugar or honey to your liking for sweetness. Lastly throw in and stir your pinch of salt. Add salt to your taste. Himalayan pink salt is great for added minerals.  Now drink up!
