Mocha Honey Race Fuel is packed with quickly-sourced carbs, potassium and a bit of protein to encourage peak performance at a marathon, ultra, obstacle race or other endurance event. Instructions for sealing the energy gel off in straws or reusable flask.
Mix together protein powder with espresso. Warm honey in microwave to 10 seconds and whisk in protein powder mixture, molasses and salt. Or, add all ingredients to an empty squirt bottle and shake until completely incorporated – this creates one less step to get the gel into straws.
To prepare straws, use needle-noses plyers and clamp a drinking straw off one end. Hold over a flame until the end sealed together. Use a squirt bottle or small spoon to fill straw up to nearly the top, leaving ½ inch clearance. Clasp top with plyers and hold over flame on opened side until sealed. Let cool and wipe away any stickiness that may have oozed out.
Mixture may also be poured in a small reusable gel flask or mixed into water, as desired. Recipe nutrition calculated on 5 servings. No refrigeration required.
