One of the gals on RunningAHEAD.com posted this a while back. Tonite I purchased the ingredients and plan to give it a try during my 20 miler on Saturday. I'll post my reaction afterwards. I'm going to have to try to divide the dry ingredients to make 8 8oz. servings, since I don't really want to make 2 quarts all at once. I think I would need roughly 2 TBs dry mix to 8oz. water...that should be pretty close. I probably have a 1oz. scoop from a can of Gatorade powder floating around, even.
Faux Endurance Sports Drink
1/2 C. + 4 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. Morton Lite Salt
1/2 tsp. table salt
1 pkg. unsweetened "Kool-aid" mix (any flavor you like)
Mix with 2 Q. water to make 64 oz.
Each 8 oz serving has 56 Calories, 14 grams carbohydrate, 220 mg sodium and 85 mg potassium.
Gatorade Endurance Formula (8 oz) has 50 Calories, 14 grams carbohydrate, 200 mg sodium, and 90 mg potassium.
