Homemade Heat Buster Recipe

It’s been a terribly hot summer in this country so far. Everywhere people are trying to stay cool and hydrated. I have a little recipe that helps me. It’s better than store bought. It isn’t as sweet and it’s 100% natural.

I kind of slid into this recipe by accident. It was built on what I’ve been drinking for years for leg cramps. I am older and as time has gone by I started getting leg cramps at night. I have an active life and a few years back I’d come in, lie down and start to get leg cramps right away so I did a little internet research and concluded that I was sweating out potassium salts and other vital nutrients and that’s what was causing the cramps. I read that bananas were a good source of potassium but that coconut water was even better. I apologize but I am not a big fan of bananas. Except for red Jamaican bananas but that’s another story. So, coconut water for me!

Prior to the onset of the leg cramps I’d been drinking a large glass of sweet tea with water soluble fiber added to help with my cholesterol and with regularity. Years ago my doctor said this was a very good practice. So I started adding coconut water to my fiber drink, too, and, lo and behold, my leg cramps just up and disappeared. I am not a pill popper. I am from the old school of “food is your best medicine."

Now that I live in an area that gets over 100 degrees on a regular basis during the summer I find that when I make a few modifications to my little fiber coconut water drink I then have a very nice electrolyte balancer.
