Hydrating Beverages

Course: Beverages


  • Dilute a 100% fruit juice like apple, orange, or grape with filtered water to provide energy and replace lost potassium. The fructose from fruits is a great type of sugar to replace used-up muscle glycogen stores after exercise or exertion. Add 1 tsp of salt per 1 quart of diluted juice to replace lost sodium, and you’ve got your own energy and electrolyte drink!
  • Put ½ water and ½ orange juice in a water bottle; add 1 tbsp of maple syrup or honey and a pinch of sea salt. Shake vigorously; served chilled.
  • In a blender combine: juice of ½ a lemon, juice of ¼ a lime, 3 dates (fresh or rehydrated), 2 cups water, 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup, 1 tsp coconut oil, and salt to taste. Combine until smooth. Keep refrigerated for 2 weeks, re-blend or shake before drinking. Makes 3 cups. (The Thrive Diet, 2007)
  • Take 1 litre of water and add 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey, 1 freshly squeezed lemon or lime, and a pinch of salt.
