REVIVE Recipe: DIY Sports Drink

Image

In our first installment of our new series, Revive Recipes, we’re going to make things really easy for you.  Revolve DC Instructor, Grant Hill’s recipe for a homemade orange-based sports drink is simple, healthy, tasty and environmentally friendly!

How it REVIVES:

A glass of this gives you water, electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium and more), and enough sugar/carbohydrate for an energy kick without the huge insulin response you’d regret in the middle of your Revolve ride.  The best part is what the recipe doesn’t contain: food coloring, loads of added sugar, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup.

The RECIPE:

  • Start with a glass of filtered water filled about 3/4 of the way
  • Add a quarter cup of orange juice (or juice of one orange)
  • Add a pinch of sea salt
  • Mix it all up!  The salt should dissolve in a couple minutes
  • Lemon juice (optional variation for orange haters)

Too simple not to try, right?  Bring some to your next indoor cycling class at Revolve… and thank Grant if you’re in DC!  #dontstopdontquit
