    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    liters

    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)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat up 1 cup of very hot water (not necessarily boiling, but pretty hot) in a Pyrex measuring cup.
    2. 2
      Add the powdered ingredients, stir until dissolved, and transfer to your 2 liter bottle(or larger).
    3. 3
      If using honey, then pour out your honey into the Pyrex cup.
    4. 4
      Add 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.
    5. 5
      Measure out the lemon juice in the mostly clean Pyrex cup and add to the bottle.
    6. 6
      The concoction will foam up … don’t panic. Stir/shake to mix all of the ingredients. The foam will dissipate momentarily.
    7. 7
      Add the remaining water (~6.2 cups) to top off the bottle and serve over ice.
    8. 8
      You may want to stretch this recipe by adding Airborne tablets or equivalent and additional water.

      I can't say that I've ever tasted Pedialyt, but I must say that I don't like this mix very much. My 4 yr old son didn't care for it either. We used Celtic Sea Salt, so perhaps I need to cut back on the salt in the recipe. It was very salty. I tried to tweak the taste by adding a bit of sugar, and it made it worse.
