Sports drink

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Sugar
⅛ teaspoon Salt
16 ounces Prepared caffeine-free lemon tea
2 ounces Orange juice

Dissolve sugar and salt in the hot tea. Cool. Blend the tea with the juice and refrigerate in your water bottle, or freeze. Can last in a sealed container up to one week. 9 oz serving equals 60 calories and 15 g of carbohydrate. From Shape magazine.

leeway: I use apple juice, or any fruit juice available. Orange spice tea is delicious, gives it some kick. I generally adjust for taste, but you don't want to load up too much sugar to spike your insulin levels.

Inexpensive alternative to sports drinks for casual workout days.

I call this Carbo Load. It is a fluid replacement product.
