Self made sports drinks a la Gatorade

Hello!

 

I did some more or less fruitless research on self made sports drinks.

 

I am looking for drink that contains only vegetables and/or fruit and/or nuts whether fresh, dried or whatsoever. No minerals or refined things whatsoever, e.g. salt or sugar.

 

Any experience on that?

 

Bye

Hi!

 

If I want to have a self made and easy-to-digest sports drinks I guess that one juice isn't enough or not at all tasty...

 

And coconut milk... well this is a thing with my philosophy: I try to use fruits/vegetables that grow (normally) in Europe and at approximately the current time (doesn't refer to dried things).

 

Otherwise coconut milk is an excellent idea!!

 

Bye

Hey Andreas,

 

I think it rocks you want to make your own sports drink. Have you heard of The Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier? He offers some recipes. I can share them on here with you if you want -- or you can get the book too?

I would think that a slightly watered-down strawberry-banana-orange juice or just banana-orange juice would be a great start. Just find something to add to it that is high in sodium. The most essential components of a sports drink are sugar, sodium, and potassium. Thanks to the orange and banana, this juice has plenty of sugar and potassium. Anything that would add sodium would make it complete. I'd recommend watering it down a little bit to reduce the sugar concentration - at full strength, it's got more than you'd need to make a proper sports drink (then again, I always used watered-down sports drinks on all but the longest and hottest runs).
