{Naturals} Electrolyte Drink

electrolytedrink

Natural, homemade, electrolyte drink. Need I say more? Oh, it may work better than commercial drinks.

Natural Electrolyte Drink
post came from the electrolyte drink mentioned in Modern Alternative Momma

1 – 1 qt (4 cup) mason jar – or any container large enuogh to hold 3-3 1/2 cups of water
1/4 piece of fresh ginger, peeled and halved
1/2 lemon, washed and cut into slices
1/32 tsp sea salt – the higher the quality, the better
1 1/2 Tbsp raw honey, add more to taste – any honey you have on hand will work
ice cubes

Hot method: 

Bring a cup of water to a soft boil. Remove from heat and pour into jar. Add ginger and steep, covered, for 5 minutes.

Add salt –1/32 tsp is barely a pinch of sea salt, and honey to the ginger. Cover and shake until the honey is dissolved. Uncover, add lemons and fill up to the 3 cup mark with ice. Add 1/2 cup of cold water – so the water line is up to 3 1/2. 

Add a straw and enjoy!

Cold method: 

In a 4 cup container add ginger, lemons, salt, honey and 2 cups of cool water. Shake well to dissolve honey. Please note that due to the temperature of the water, not all of the honey will dissolve. This is okay, as it will continue to sweeten the drink as you drink.  After a majority of the honey has been dissolved, add ice until the water level reaches 3 cups.

Add a straw and enjoy!

This drink is safe for children over the age of 1 and adults. Use after working out, during a cold/flu/bug, or just to help hydrate your body. Please do not, ever, ever, give a child under the age of 1 honey. Because this drink contains honey, it was not made from them.

    I’m getting ready to run a Ragnar in July, and my wife found this amazing drink I’ve been having after my training runs. It really seems to help, and isn’t overloaded with anything you don’t need. Try it out!
