Homemade Electrolyte Drink

June 29, 2022

It can get hot in the Okanagan ☀️ and if you are active you may find this helpful. It is also perfect for kids coming back from the Flu when it is so easy to get dehydrated. This simple homemade drink is packed with electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals (and it doesn’t have the dyes, processed sugar etc, of the store bought alternatives).


Coconut water is often referred to as “nature’s gatorade” because it contains a variety of electrolytes including sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

Citrus fruits are a good source of vitamin C, enzymes, and electrolytes, including calcium and potassium. (Tip: One Lime and half a lemon is good, or for less tang and a little more sweetness use the juice of one orange)

Raw honey contains antioxidants, a variety of vitamins and minerals, and has antimicrobial properties.

Unprocessed sea salt OR Pink Himalayan salt contain trace minerals to help you feel balanced quickly.

*Together, these ingredients make an incredibly tasty and effective homemade electrolyte drink that can supply the body with a concentrated source of nutrients.

Serving and Storage

This drink is best served chilled. I typically add a little ice, especially if I’m using it when I’m working outside in the heat or working out. You can mix up a batch directly in a quart-sized mason jar and let it chill in the refrigerator. It will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
