1/1 Photo of Homemade Pedialyte
Reuse an old 2 liter bottle and help add electrolytes, but with a somewhat healthier twist.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 8 1/4 cups water
- 1 -1 1/2 teaspoon morton lite salt (Sea salt if not Morton Lite Salt. The key is to add KCl not just NaCl. Morton Lite is half and half,)
- 1/2-1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon gelatin powder (Jel-O)
- 2 tablespoons sugar (If honey is not used, see below, then the recipe calls for 4-6 tablespoons of sugar, to taste)
- 1/3 cup raw honey (Do not use honey if this drink is to be served to children under 12 months old)
- 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4-6 lemons)
- 1Heat up 1 cup of very hot water (not necessarily boiling, but pretty hot) in a Pyrex measuring cup.
- 2Add the powdered ingredients, stir until dissolved, and transfer to your 2 liter bottle(or larger).
- 3If using honey, then pour out your honey into the Pyrex cup.
- 4Add honey to the 2 liter bottle, let it pour for 30 seconds, use 1 cup of hot water to rinse out the residual honey from the Pyrex measuring cup into the bottle. You should have a total of 2 cups of water in the bottle along with all of the ingredients sans the lemon juice.
- 5Measure out the lemon juice in the mostly clean Pyrex cup and add to the bottle.
- 6The concoction will foam up … don’t panic. Stir/shake to mix all of the ingredients. The foam will dissipate momentarily.
- 7Add the remaining water (~6.2 cups) to top off the bottle and serve over ice.
- 8You may want to stretch this recipe by adding Airborne tablets or equivalent and additional water.
