Hello Beautiful Souls!
Today I am sharing my favorite homemade electrolyte energy drink recipe that I take when we head to the beach to enjoy the sun’s rays and the tranquil sound of the waves crashing on the beach! I could live in my bikini on the beach! It is one of my favorite things in the World!
If you are anything like me, you love the warmth of the sun’s rays and the beautiful afterglow it creates on your skin, but the summer sun can really take a toll on your energy if you are outside for a length of time (hours at a time). In the past I have gotten heat stroke with fever, sunburn, puffy lips and face, dehydration and so forth. I found a couple things that helped me avoid that at the beach and one of them is a delicious homemade energy drink recipe to help replenish your electrolytes as well as energy that you use playing in the sun and water!
I found this recipe years ago and have altered it slightly to my taste and sip it all day long when I am outside in the sun for extended periods at the beach.
I love this energy drink recipe because it is uses all natural ingredients and has no added chemicals or other harmful ingredients or sugars other than what the fruit provides.
I do a lot of my grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s and I am there a few times a week, so I get all these food items there to create this tasty summer electrolyte energy drink.
You will need a container that will hold about 50 ounces of liquid.
1 whole fresh orange
1/2 of a fresh lemon
1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1/2 Container of Trader Joe’s Large Coconut water
Honey or Stevia to taste
Fresh spring water or Electrolyte water (Trader Joe’s)
Squeeze the juice of the whole fresh orange and half of a fresh lemon into your container. Add the honey and the pink Himalayan salt which has so many health benefits (find out more about the health benefits of using pink Himalayan salt over other salt here). The original recipe called for over a tablespoon of honey. You can use Stevia if you prefer, although there is natural sugar already provided from some of the other ingredients. Next, add the contents of about half of the large 33.8oz pure coconut water. Shake before you add the pure spring water to dissolve the honey and salt, otherwise it takes a little longer to dissolve on it’s own. Finally, add the electrolyte water or fresh spring water to fill the rest of the container to the top. Shake/mix all the ingredients in your container and sip throughout the day for a refreshing, delicious electrolyte energy boost!
Notes: I prefer the electrolyte water vs. the spring water for the added electrolytes when I am in the harsh sun. I also prefer the honey over the stevia because it tastes delicious with the mixture of the other ingredients and it is calorie/nutrient dense while out in the sun.
I invite you to let me know how you like this homemade electrolyte energy drink recipe!
