Sport Benefits: Drink this homemade sports drink to top up your carbohydrate and/or electrolytes during activity lasting longer than 45-60 min of moderate intensity. It can also be used when athletes are running short on time pre-training and need a top up of fuel and fluid that’s easy to digest within an hour before exercise. Customize this to your preference by using ANY 100% fruit or fruit and vegetable juice!
