Description DIY recovery drink mix
Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: Drinks
  • 3⁄4 t morton® lite salt
  • 1 pkt unsweetened drink mix
  • 10 T sugar or sugar substitute of choice
  1. Mix the powders together. Add to 2 Liters cold water (a hydration bladders worth).
Stats for an 8 oz serving:
14.2 grams carbohydrate, 53 calories, 103 mg Sodium, 121 mg Potassium
You'll notice that the amount of potassium is quite a bit higher than Gatorade®, but the rest is pretty close. If you wanted to reduce the potassium, another option would be to use ½ tsp. each of regular salt and the Morton® Lite Salt. This would change it to: 104mg sodium, 40mg potassium.
If you use sugar substitute, the calories will be much lower. If drinking out of a hydration bladder sugar can cause growth in the tubing in hot weather, consider using Stevia or similar to avoid this.
