In this age of inflation sports drinks like Gatorade don’t come cheap. One clever way to beat the corporate prices is to make your home made sports drink.
If you take a look at a gatorade bottle you will see gatorade has a formulation that gives the following for an 8oz serving:
- 14grams Carbohydrate (5.9%)
- 110 mg Sodium
- 30mg Potassium
- 52 calories
The good news is that making a sports drink from home is pretty cheap. Everything you need is right in your kitchen.
