Did you know you can make a tasty and refreshing homemade electrolyte lemonade instead of sipping those store-bought sport-drinks, usually loaded with refined sugars, artificial flavours and colours? Just follow our easy recipe!
Electrolytes like sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium are essential for proper muscle and brain functions. This electrolytes drink combines selected ingredients to help you rehydrate and restore those minerals lost after a workout session or during hot weather.
This recipe includes:
Citrus fruit and coconut water: they are naturally rich in electrolytes and give also a refreshing taste to this lemonade.
Salt: it's a source of sodium, but make sure you choose a high-quality salt to get more minerals, like pure Himalayan salt.
Water: it's essential to stay well hydrated.
Raw Organic Honey: it's a natural source of carbohydrates which provide energy to the working muscles that water cannot and thus essential during your workout.
This recipe will help you to recover when you feel fatigued or have muscle cramps or headaches because of dehydration. Make sure you also eat mineral-rich foods including dairy products or leafy greens for calcium - try our tasty kale crisps; bananas and avocados for potassium; nuts and seeds for magnesium - make these delicious cashew nut truffles.

To prepare this electrolyte lemonade, make sure you have good-quality fresh ingredients as they will provide more nutrients.
Juice the lemon, lime, orange, and pink grapefruit with the help of a citrus press juicer, extractor, or hand squeezer.
If you can, keep the mashed pulp and bits as they'll make your lemonade higher in fibres.
Pour the juices into a blender bowl and add coconut water, cold water, Himalayan salt, freshly grated ginger, and raw organic honey.
Blitz until the ingredients are well mixed.
Serve this amazing electrolyte water right away with ice cubes and sprig of thyme.
Store this electrolyte lemonade in the fridge for 2 days in a tightly sealed bottle.
Instead of honey, you can use maple syrup, agave syrup, or zero-calorie erythritol.
Cucumber and pomegranate are other electrolyte-rich foods which can also be used to prepare this lemonade.
