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.
- 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
