During times of extreme heat, it’s critical to stay hydrated. Add in any workouts or running, and it becomes even more imperative to be vigilant with your hydration and rehydration needs. I won’t go into the “hows” and “whys” here — but you should check out this post so you’re aware of the dangers of dehydration.
When I’m working out — or even just outside in the heat for long periods of time — one of my go-to drinks is an electrolyte replacement called SOS Rehydrate. I make most of my post-workout smoothies with at least a little bit of SOS, but I also use it as my drink on long runs. It works really well to keep me hydrated.
I recently created a refreshing, citrus-based smoothie for the hot summer days when I need to quench my thirst, replace lost electrolytes, and cool down quick. The citrus mango, plus banana and vanilla is quite a delicious combination.
Citrus Mango Rehydrating Smoothie
- 1 banana, cut into 1″ pieces
- 2 clementines, peeled and segmented
- 1/4 C vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 C water
- 1/2 packet of mango SOS Rehydrate
- handful of ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender. Serve and enjoy!
This smoothie is fantastic for any time of day — after a dip in the pool, out on the patio while the kids play — and of course, post-workout. Try it and tell me how much you love it. I bet you will!
