  • 3-4 ripe bananas
  • 1 stalk celery or ½ cup celery juice (optional)


  1. Blend together until smooth and pour into a water bottle to take on the go
  • This recipe contains plenty of electrolyte minerals, vitamins and enzymes needed for a good workout as well as natural salts from the celery

Fruit Water


  • 1 cup dried fruit (apricots, raisins, dates, figs, or pineapple)
  • 1 quart purified water


  1. Soak overnight to allow the sugars and electrolytes in the fruit to seep into the water
  2. Pour the water into a water bottle for an instant sports drink and save the fruit to eat later, if desired
  3. Use one type of fruit or a mixture of your favorite fruits
