Ever since Mickey ended up in the hospital a couple of months ago from dehydration we have been extra careful about him getting enough fluid to drink.
We have been purchasing Pedia*lite & Gat*or*aide which can get a might costly.

I was delighted when looking up some honey recipes last week after he harvested the Spring Honey flow and I found this hydrate drink made with honey!!! It is so delicious I wanted to share it with everyone.

Honey Hydrate Drink

1/2 cup honey

1/2 teaspoon lite salt

2 cups orange juice

5 1/2 cups lukewarm water

Combine - Stir until honey is dissolved & refrigerate.

You can see I am bottling it up in the empty gator*aide bottles we had.

Delicious, convenient and money saving.

This recipe is just in time for me! I'm starting a 60-day eating plan which consists of alternating between normal days, half portions days, liquid days and fasting days.
Thanks for sharing!

Wish you were close enough to get some of Mickey's great honey!!!! Don't you just love it though, the way God puts exactly what we need right there when we need it!!!!

Thanks for the recipe. I know what you mean at the cost of keeping hubs in drinks.
Congrats on your church pay off.
The Lord sure does give us just what we need.
Have a great weekend.

Sounds like it makes a bunch. We drink rehydrating beverages when it is super hot (like this past week) or on long bike rides. With the OJ I don't think this would keep well on the bike, though. I might try halving the recipe for here at home...

I like the sound of this! I think for sure that my husband would like it, but I'm worried about the honey with him having diabetes. Thanks so much for sharing. It sounds so refreshing!

I too copied this down. My husband drinks a lot of Gator-ade and this would be a good change of pace for him. Thanks!
