Here is a re-post from a great blog called Family Bites. We have tried it and indeed it was a hit with our boys. We substituted honey for the agave, just mixing the same amount with warm water first to get it in solution. Enjoy!
Today I offer you a drink recipe. Something I’ve been working on for these active boys of mine. Always in need of a thirst quencher, but periodically bored of plain water, Ben loves to grab a Gatorade. We don’t keep them on hand at home, but almost every arena and sports facility he visits sells this energy drink, so he isn’t often without.
Like most packaged or pre-made goods, I have a few issues with some of the ingredients. So I made my own. Close in taste but a healthier option, our homemade gatorade has been the requested drink of late. I’m pleased as punch that’s it’s been a success and the kids are pleased with the variety of options we now have at home.
What are you drinking up these days?
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 6 cups cold water
- 2 cups orange juice
- 1/2 cup agave
- 2 lemons, juiced
~ Combine the salt and warm water and stir until the salt has dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill in the fridge and serve cold.
