Thought to share a recently concocted recipe for an energy gel:
1 Tbs of unsweetened pomegranate syrup
1 Tbs gelatin
2 Tbs honey
70 ml (2.5 oz) hot water
1/2 tsp glycerol (glycerine)
Mix ingredients thouroughly till gelatin dissolves. Pour into plastic flask, cool at room temp and refrigerate.
The gelatin solidifies in the refrigerator but dissolves during the ride. Resultant mix is not as messy as honey water without gelatin, because it is thicker.
