Drink Today: Pineapple Lime Sports Drink

Spread the love

pineapple lime drinkI have kids in soccer, lacrosse, baseball and hockey, so hydration is serious business around here – and my kids love those colorful sports drinks that are everywhere. A sports drink is meant to deliver hydration as well as fast digesting carbohydrates for a source of quick energy, plus some electrolytes (like sodium and potassium) to replace some of what is lost in sweat. Unfortunately, most store-bought sports drinks also come with tons of added sugar, or artificial sweeteners, artificial colors and other ingredients you just don’t want or need.

Save yourself some money and improve the quality of what you’re drinking by making your own delicious and thirst-quenching drink. This sports drink recipe makes enough to fill three standard-sized water bottles.

Pineapple Lime Sports Drink

• 2 1/2 cups unsweetened plain coconut water
• 1 cup water
• 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
• 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Place all of the ingredients in a large jug or jar and stir to combine, or whiz it up in a blender. Store in the fridge or freeze into popsicles!
