I prepared this drink and took it after a workout. You can take it at any time of the day because it’s very refreshing and will keep you hydrated. Compared to other drinks or smoothies, this one is really simple and easy and the benefits are many.
You don’t need many ingredients and if you like lemonades, you will love it!
Brendan’s Original Lemon Lime Sports Drink
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup water
- 2 dates (pitted fresh or presoaked dried)
- Juice from ½ lemon
- Juice from ¼ lime
- Sea salt to taste
Combine all ingredients into a blender, blend and drink.
This has to be my favorite recipe I’ve recreated so far. The taste is amazing. Soft but crunchy with just the right amount of sweet. It has lots of ingredients that boost your energy so you can consume it before a workout, after for recovery or as a snack, which is my case.
Some of my friends where able to try it my samples and I was lucky enough to save a few to freeze for future snacks.

until the nuts are in very small pieces. Add the cacao nibs; pulse until they are the
same size as the nuts. Add the dates and agave; pulse until a dough forms. Press
the dough into the bottom and up the sides of silicone cupcake molds,
keeping it thin to ensure lots of room for the filling. Set aside.

Divide the filling among the molds.
