During warm weather you sweat more in and out of the yoga studio. This means you’re losing important electrolytes (salts) as well as water. One of my favourite drinks to naturally replenish electrolytes is coconut water, which provides an instant hit of essential sodium and potassium.

A quick way to increase your electrolyte intake is to use coconut water in your smoothies instead of milk or non-dairy milk. Coconut water is lighter than milks, so you might want to add some richer ingredients to give it that lovely creaminess.
