The gist of this recipe is simple: one part juice to two parts water, freshly squeezed lemon, and a pinch of Himalayan salt.

The reason we call this a hydration drink is because it contains key components for hydration: sodium, potassium, vitamin C, and electrolytes. We actually refer to this as “healthy Gatorade” in my house!

Breaking Down the Benefits of Each Ingredient

Grape Juice– contains potassium and electrolytes
Salt– is responsible for keeping the sodium in your blood cells, and will prevent you from becoming dehydrated. Himalayan salt contains trace minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
Fresh Lemon– provides electrolytes, vitamin C, and even potassium.

And now for the recipe!

The Best Electrolyte Drink Recipe

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt (I use Himalayan pink salt)

1/2 a lemon, or 1 and 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 cups grape juice (I use Kedem Light)
4 cups water or seltzer (preferably chilled)

In a medium-sized pitcher, pour in the salt, followed by the lemon juice. Next, add the grape juice and water (or seltzer). Stir to dissolve the salt. Enjoy!
