5. Sports Drink Shell Recipe
A “shell recipe” is one that gives you amounts for broader ingredient categories instead of specific ingredients. So, for example, instead of “coconut water” it might give a list of base liquids, and instead of “maple syrup,” a shell recipe would call for something like “liquid sweetener of choice.” A shell recipe allows you to build your own recipe using what you like or what you have on hand, and Welness Mama has a great shell recipe for making natural sports drink alternatives!
