  • Stir baking soda and salt into water until dissolved.
  • Add orange juice and stir gently to mix. The mixture may foam slightly.
  • Pour into a glass or sippy cup to serve. 
  • Sip slowly to rehydrate.


  • It is fine to dilute this electrolyte drink more if desired.
  • Do not add more salt or baking soda than specified in this recipe, as too much sodium is dangerous during dehydration. 
  • You can substitute coconut water or other natural fruit juices for the orange juice.
  • Pour into a popsicle mold and freeze for two hours to make your own electrolyte popsicles! These popsicles can make rehydrating more enjoyable, and they can also soothe a sore throat. Kids absolutely love them. ;)
