I dont know why the recipe used baking soda maybe because its easier to measure in smaller mg ?

I play with the recipe though. I used it as a starting point.
I stick with coconut water and sea salt mainly.

Its been a while but if I remember right, the recipe was originally posted as a natural alternative to rehydrate. Not an energy drink. Just more of a way to stay hydrated when one is sick.
I did the second long post when someone asked about using it while excersising.

How do you make coconut water, or is it just coconut milk?

Coconut water is the clear liquid inside the coconut.
Coconut milk is the water/pulp. Neither are sweet unless sweetner is added.

Gotcha. I don't do soft drinks or alcohol and I am not fond of juice, so I am always looking for something interesting to drink.

Coconut water is very subtle tasting, Its delicious with natural sweetning or even plain but I can only do that if its super chilled. Not sure why but that's just my taste buds.

Coconut milk, I have to add to things to it, the texture is thick and a bit to much of a roasted flavor for me, not sure if that's a good description of the taste.

LOL - yeah the homemade electrolyte is from the book Naturally Healthy Babies and Children by Aviva Jill Romm and it's meant for an ill person. It's an amazing book.

I sooo understand you Me on the taste of coconut water. My dominican card might be revoked considering in DR you can't walk without hitting a guy with a cart full of chilled green coconuts ready to hack an opening into them and slip in a straw. I just cannot for the life of me like the taste of coconut water. Coconut milk I love because I use it in plenty of sweet things but blegh, coconut water is weird on my tongue.

I've tested it enough to add calcium bentonite clay to my mix.
Every time I add it we stopped vomiting/diareah instantly. Last night was the first time I had 3 sick kids and an infant. So nice to be up all night dealing with fevers and crying without the clean up factor.whew!
