But, nevertheless, this started a conversation about this here little blog and he told me he had a home-made gel recipe that he was willing to share. Awesome! I have not made this yet but I can't wait to try it.
Let's get our fuel on...
75ml Brown Rice Syrup
40ml Agave Nectar
15ml Blackstrap Molasses
4 pinches Sea Salt
Zest of 1 Orange
Mix well in a blender.
Makes 1 gel flask, 500cal.
Thank you Steve McC!!
Steve said he purchased all of the ingredients at our local co-op,
but I'm sure you can get this stuff at any specialty or natural foods grocery store.
Recognize the Blackstrap Molasses? It's in my BBQ Sauce too.
Like I said, I can't wait to try this.
Considering how much any athlete pays for fuel on a regular basis, this is a great alternative.
I believe Steve said he figured out a filler for a gel flask is usually about $1.50,
but the home-made method puts it out to be about 10 cents per flask.
And, he says it tastes good too!
Now go get your home-made gel-fuel on!
P.S. This is also under the recipe reviews tab up above so it's easier to get to in the future.
