Recipe: DIY isotonic drink

Sports nutrition products can eat a hole in your budget, so why not make your own? Sports diet consultant Kate Percy shows you how

Isotonic sports drinks are rammed with sugar and minerals.

However there is no real need to replace nutrient losses during training.

Fluid and salt losses are your primary concern and a homemade sports drink does the job very well.

Recipe 1

» 250ml pure, unsweetened fruit juice (any flavour)
» 250ml water
» Pinch of salt (one fifth of a teaspoon)

Mix all ingredients together and shake well. Store in the fridge.

Recipe 2

» 100ml squash (not sugar free)
» 400ml water
» Pinch of salt (one fifth of a teaspoon)

Mix all ingredients together and shake well. Store in the fridge.
