Grapefruit Orange Electrolyte Replenishing Drink

I love grapefruits! Always have and always will. There is just something about a nice cold glass of grapefruit juice that I love. I think mostly because it just tastes and feels more “refreshing”. Back in university, my go to after workout drink was grapefruit juice. I’d mix in a bit of honey and BAM! A refreshing post workout recovery drink!

Over the years I’ve refined my post workout drinks but the following drink is one that I use for “special occasions”, mainly after an intense cardio session. It retains the refreshing qualities of the grapefruit but has more punch to the recovery properties.  I’ve added an orange and a lemon to the mix and all I can say is WOW! This one tastes absolutely awesome! This drink will replenish your lost electrolytes (sodium and potassium) lost during and exercise and includes just enough carbohydrates to get you back on the road to recovery.

So, what will you need for this electrolyte replenishing drink?

½ cup fresh grapefruit juice (from one grapefruit)

½ cup fresh orange juice (from one navel orange)

¼ cup fresh lemon juice (from one lemon)

1 cup of coconut water

2 tablespoons of honey

1/8 teaspoon of sea salt

Plus 4 to 5 ice cubes.

To make, simply squeeze the juice from the lemon, grapefruit and orange. Pour into a blender along with the coconut water, honey, sea salt and ice cubes. Blend on high for about 30 seconds until the ice cubes are crushed. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
