How to make your own sports drink

Sports Bottle

As well as using commercial sports drinks, making your own is also an option. It is really simple, requires a few ingredients and is a lot cheaper that what you can buy in the shops. Here are 3 versions that you could consider.

  1. 500 ml fruit juice mixed with 500 ml water and 0.5 – 1g salt (optional)
  2. 200 ml squash mixed with 800 ml water and 0.5 – 1g salt (optional)
  3. 40 – 80g sugar and 0.5 – 1g salt dissolved in 1 litre of water; add a little sugar free squash for flavour, if preferred.
