Staying hydrated in the summertime can sometimes be difficult. Often we reach for electrolyte replacement drinks, which are loaded with sugar. Young children can get dehydrated even while at the pool or lake.

To keep you and your family hydrated, registered dietitian Samantha Stewart put together this recipe for a heart-healthy drink. 



½ cup fresh orange juice

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

2 cups water (filtered or purified or raw coconut milk)

1/8 tsp Himalayan Pink salt
