Homemade Electrolyte Drink

A new year; a new you. This is the time of year that many people turn to focus on health/eating better and/or exercise.  This recipe is a great addition to any health goals.  I take it with me on long walks, to keep hydrated.

2 cups liquid (I use/prefer coconut water, you could also use green tea, herbal tea or regular water)

1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan salt

1/8 to 1/4 cup fruit juice (I used lemon, you could try lime, orange, etc or mix your flavors)

1/4 to 1/2 cup mixed berries (or your favorite fruit), frozen

1 tbsp sweetener (I used honey, you could use Agave Nectar, any organic sugar, Stevia, Etc)

1/8 tsp baking soda

Pour about half of coconut water into blender carafe. Add remaining ingredients and then the remainder of the coconut water. Blend until well mixed. Pour through a strainer, removing any remaining fruit bits. Put bits back into empty blender; add about 1/4 c water; swish; blend again for a couple of seconds. Strain again; discard any fruit bits remaining. Pour into sports bottle; enjoy on your long walks/runs.
You can change the fruit, liquid, fruit juice; sweetener to your liking. Have fun; enjoy.

Here are additional pictures of the drink…once it sets a bit, it separates a little – just shake it up before taking a drink.
