Natural Electrolyte Drink Recipe

Natural Electrolyte Drink

There are many reasons why an electrolyte drink may be needed. You or your child is sick and is getting dehydrated. You’ve spend a lot of time outside in the hot sun. You haven’t been getting enough minerals through your diet so your cells are dehydrated. In each of these cases, you will find this electrolyte drink to be refreshing to your body and taste buds!


  • 8 oz filtered water
  • juice of 1 lemon or lime*
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp sea salt Celtic or Baja Gold are best


  • Fill up a glass or jar with approximately 8 oz of water, and add desired amount of sea salt. Next roll your lemon or lime on the counter, applying pressure, until it feels more squishy inside. This means the juices have been released. (This will make juicing easier, and will also increase the amount of juice that will end up in your drink.) Cut the lemon or lime in half, then squeeze the juice into the water. Use your discretion, you may need to use 1.5-2 fruits if they are small or dry. Then stir and enjoy!
  • Listen to your body as you are drinking it. Sip or gulp as directed by your taste buds and intuition. I like to make mine in a pint mason jar with a lid, so I can bring it with me and sip on it throughout the day. It is great anytime, not just when you are sick or out in the sun. Minerals are necessary to health, and if you are feeling tired, run down, tense or just “off” you may need more of them. Try this drink out and see how it feels!
  • *Lemons and limes are different in their nutritional and electrolyte make-up. I would recommend defaulting to limes, as this seems to be more hydrating. But you can experiment with lemons as well to see which your body likes best!
