Easy Peasy Sports Drink Alternative Recipe


It is hot outside and it doesn’t take long to get dehydrated.  Instead of reaching for that commercial sports drink try this homemade frugal alternative.


  •          1 Package lemon lime Kool-ade drink mix
  •          1 C sugar
  •           1/8 t salt
  •           1/4 C lime or lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a 2 qt container. Serve cold. This recipe has less potassium than traditional sports drinks. To increase the potassium add an additional ¾ C of lemon or lime juice.
