  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)
  • Ice cubes, for serving
  • Sliced oranges and lemons, for garnish (optional)



  1. In a large pitcher, combine the coconut water, freshly squeezed orange juice, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  2. Stir in the sea salt until dissolved. The sea salt helps replenish electrolytes lost through sweat.
  3. If desired, add honey or maple syrup to sweeten the drink to your liking. Stir until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
  4. Chill the Nature’s Gatorade in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together and for the drink to become cold.
  5. Before serving, fill glasses with ice cubes to keep the drink cool and refreshing.
  6. Pour the chilled Nature’s Gatorade into the glasses over the ice cubes.
  7. If desired, garnish each glass with slices of orange and lemon for a decorative touch.
  8. Stir the drink gently before enjoying to ensure that the flavors are evenly distributed.


Tips for Success:

  • Use fresh, high-quality ingredients for the best flavor and nutritional value. Freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice will provide the most vibrant citrus flavors.
  • Adjust the sweetness of the drink to your preference by adding more or less honey or maple syrup.
  • For an extra boost of hydration, you can add a few slices of cucumber or a sprig of mint to the pitcher for a refreshing twist.
  • Store any leftover Nature’s Gatorade in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Shake or stir before serving to recombine any settled ingredients.



  • Tropical Twist: Add a splash of pineapple juice or blend in chunks of fresh pineapple for a tropical flavor.
  • Berry Blast: Stir in a handful of fresh or frozen berries such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries for a burst of fruity goodness.
  • Herbal Infusion: Add a few sprigs of fresh herbs such as basil, mint, or rosemary to the pitcher for an herbal infusion that’s both refreshing and aromatic.
