Natural Post Workout Electrolyte Drink

It’s that time of year where when I work out I feel like I just jumped in a pool by the end of my workout. Heck, I can walk out of my house and not even workout and feel like that some days, leaving me wondering why I even bother to shower lol.

Because the Texas summer humidity and heat makes me sweat so much more I always make sure I am staying hydrated, even more so now that I am pregnant! I make sure to drink tons of water throughout the day, but after workouts I like to refuel with this awesome natural electrolyte drink via The Performance Paleo Cookbook. You lose a lot more than just water when you sweat. You lose important electrolytes like potassium and sodium that are needed for proper muscle and nerve function.

This recipe is so delicious and the perfect refreshing flavor during the summer! It kind of tastes like a Pina Colada! The coconut water used in this recipe is an excellent source of potassium, but is lacking in essential sodium to refuel the muscles. That’s why you will see sea salt as one of the ingredients listed below to make up for that. The pineapple juice adds in more than just delicious flavor. It provides a decent source of fruit-based glucose which is used to replace the glycogen you’ve used up from your muscles during exercise.

Ditch the Gatorade and other artificial sports drinks that are anything but natural this summer and opt for this natural electrolyte drink. I bet you might even like it better!

Directions:

  • Mix all the ingredients in a glass jar, and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or so..
