Maple Cranberry Sports Drink
This all-natural homemade energy drink provides a great tasting mix of carbohydrates to fuel your muscles. It also contains electrolytes (sodium and potassium) to help replace what your body loses through sweat. The added bonus is what it doesn’t contain– artificial flavors, colorings and preservatives found in many commercially prepared energy drinks.
- 3 cups cranberry juice (100% juice)
- 5 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 star anise, optional
Mix together all the ingredients. If using star anise, leave to infuse for one hour then strain. Refrigerate.
