Homemade Electrolyte Drink Recipe

Thank goodness for this Homemade Electrolyte Drink Recipe!!  I’ve started the Ketogenic Diet and I have learned that electrolytes are mandatory for this way of life. It’s not a suggestion. If I don’t have this drink, I feel horrible and the scale doesn’t move in the way I want it too!  Seriously.

If you are new to the Ketogenic Diet (Keto Diet for short), here’s a good explanation of how it works and how to start:  Simple Way to Start the Ketogenic Diet

The Ketogenic diet “flushes” your system… You need salt to hold in some of the water to stay hydrated. I found this to be very confusing in the beginning. Your body will signal what it needs and soon you will know exactly what you are low on by those signals.

This is my morning drink. Sometimes I drink it twice a day. If I don’t drink it, I get headaches.

If you are on the keto diet and suffer from headaches, try this homemade electrolyte drink recipe! When I was getting started on the ketogenic diet, it helped me so much!

Homemade Electrolyte Drink Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 squirt stevia
  • 8 oz water

optional:  NoSalt for potassium

For those of you doing the Beef and Butter Fast Challenge, be sure to add the NoSalt to this mix for potassium.  It’s extremely important to get your electrolytes when doing the Keto Diet or any really strict form of the Ketogenic diet.  I would add a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon.

Did you know Himalayan salt has 84 trace minerals?!

I’ve been on the Ketogenic Diet (also called Keto Diet) for months now. This recipe is one I use often.  I might even go as far to say that I can’t live without it.   I buy some really good lemon juice at Costco too.


Here are a few more suggestions to help you stay hydrated:

  • Pickle Juice
  • Bone Broth
  • Powerade Zero

    Thank you for all you do, Jennifer! I make my drink with a combination of fresh lemon juice and lime juice plus add 2 TBSP of ACV, along with the Redmon’s salt and Nu-Salt. I may or may not add Stevia, it’s that yummy to me. P.S. I just found the Chai Tea Latte recipe in the cookbook. Can’t wait to make it!! <3

  2. Hi Jennifer – Thank you for your insight and for these recipes which are the most user friendly on the web! Natural ingredients most of which I can already find in my kitchen cupboards. Today is my 7th day on the Keto plan and I’m hoping I’m doing it correctly because as you pointed out there is much conflicting information out there on the inter web.

    1. I went to Costco to get more and I couldn’t find it again. I’m not sure if they are just out or not ordering it anymore. It had an Italian name. Sadly, I don’t remember. Sorry.

  3. Thank you for all your information! I’m just starting the keto diet and I’m a true veggie fanatic so I really appreciate this info! Like you said, Dr. Berg has great info and does encourage a lot of veggies. Thanks again – love your blog!
