Stay hydrated with our latest heart healthy drink: homemade citrus electrolyte drink

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. The drink can also be poured into ice trays and made as ice. For more information, check out the recipe demo Samantha did recently on Fox 16 News.
