Ayurvedic Electrolyte Beverage

Prep Time:

5 minutes



About the Recipe

Do you keep drinking water, but still feel dehydrated? One reason may be that you need to replenish electrolytes. This simple beverage is a natural alternative to sports drinks, saving you from harmful dyes and chemicals.


Juice from 1/4-1/2 a lime (depends on juiciness of the lime and your taste preference)

16 oz. of water (hot or room temperature)

1/2 teaspoon of natural sugar (maple syrup, raw sugar, jaggery)

1/4 teaspoon of salt


Mix all of the ingredients together and enjoy!

Drink this at room temperature during the summer and hot during the colder months.

This is excellent for rehydrating when there is a fever or diarrhea.

This can also be made with lemon.

Lime is slightly better for pitta dosha because it has a sweet post-digestive effect, as opposed to lemon having a sour post-digestive effect.

You may need to heat the water to melt the raw sugar or jaggery.

If you use honey, please do not cook the honey as this will change its properties and make it less beneficial (some say toxic).
