Electrolyte sports drinks are popular among athletes and active children. While most of us won't need to worry about replacing electrolytes unless we're sweating and working out vigorously for more than an hour, there are times such as when you're sick, pregnant, nursing or out in the sun a lot, when a drink containing natural electrolytes can be hydrating.  However store bought sports drink versions are generally filled with sugar or artificial sweeteners and can be expensive!  So here is how you can make your own at home! You'll need 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 cups of filtered water, 2-4 tablespoons raw honey or sugar (to taste) and 1/8 teaspoon unrefined salt (to taste). In a blender, blend all of the ingredients together until the honey or sugar is dissolved. t tastes sort of like orange lemonade with a dash of salt.
