Homemade Pedialyte and/or Freezer Pops
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 8 cups distilled water
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of unrefined salt
  • ½ Gallon Container (pitcher, mason jar, anything that is ½ gallon)
  • ½ cup organic juice OR 4 drops essential oils for flavor {please make sure your essential oils are SAFE to ingest}. (OPTIONAL)
  1. Warm 2 cups of water until hot (this is to dissolve the salt and sugar).
  2. Add hot water, sugar, and salt to a bowl. Stir until salt and sugar are dissolved.
  3. Pour the hot water mixture into your ½ gallon container.
  4. Add remaining 6 cups of water to container. If using juice or essential oils add them to container. Cover.
  5. Shake container.
  6. Store in fridge and serve cold.
My kiddos will drink this plain but if yours won't you can add in organic juice or essential oils. Make sure the juice you are adding doesn't have bad ingredients {CHECK YOUR LABELS}. My kiddos love orange essential oil OR lemon & lime essential oil in this recipe. I LOVE adding the citrus essential oils because they push toxins out of the body at the same time the homemade Pedialyte hydrates. DOUBLE WHAMMY!

*To make freezer pops: add the finished recipe to freezer pop molds and freeze. Simple as that!

***I recommend unrefined sugar and salt. You CAN use refined sugar and salt if that is all you have on hand.

Happy homemade Pedialyte making! Hope the kid(dos) feel better soon!
