Make Your Own Grape Electrolyte Beverage

It is easy to make your own electrolyte beverage when you have a need for some extra hydration and don’t like the less than stellar ingredients in some of the brands available out there, like artificial dyes and refined sugars that you normally wouldn’t put in your system.  An electrolyte drink can be helpful to prevent dehydration and soothe the tummy with cold and flu season coming up, after an intense sweat session, or during, ahem, a colonoscopy prep where you can only consume clear liquids and jello in certain colors!

Make Your Own Electrolyte Beverage

I recently had a colonoscopy to prep for, and the handout they give you for what you can consume for a whole day without being dehydrated, really hungry or drinking a lot of processed beverages that aren’t  good for you seemed daunting.

After a little research, I put together an electrolyte drink using organic white grape juice to help me stay hydrated, so I didn’t feel weak after the procedure. The white grape juice met the criteria for clear with no red or purple colors and helped balance electrolytes with the sea salt and baking soda.  I also made my own jello using Vital Proteins gelatin, ice pops, and sipped on herbal teas and clear broth.

Grape Electrolyte Beverage

Ingredients:

2 Cups of Good Water

1/4 Cup of White Grape Juice

1 Tablespoon of Clear Honey

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

Whisk all the liquids together, and refrigerate.

This is a very easy and inexpensive way to make an electrolyte beverage with good ingredients that are handy right in your pantry. You can change out the juices as desired and come up with flavors of your own!

  • If you are on a sodium restricted diet, talk with your doctor before consuming an electrolyte beverage.

Have a great day!
